According to a survey of the National Statistical Institute – NSI, for 2016, nearly two-thirds of households in Bulgaria, or over 58% of the country’s total population, have access to the Internet and use it actively every day or at least once a week. Over 95% of online users are active in social networking sites, and 81.4% read online newspapers and magazines, including their respective comment sections. These data explain the relatively high levels of consumer activity in our country as regards the volume of published statements and personal opinion sharing in the public Internet space, as well as their indicativeness on specific issues.
The large volumes published by online users gives us ample opportunity to isolate trends with a wide range of applications for B2C-based companies, for companies offering professional marketing and PR services, for political movements, for institutions with enhanced media coverage, and for a number of other organisations whose operations are directly influenced by citizens’ views of certain aspects of their activities.
