Though consumers and marketers are fairly aligned in their focus on Facebook—similar proportions of each segment use the social networking site—marketers tend to be out of synch with their audiences regarding the use of other popular social channels, according to a study by Pitney Bowes Software.

Below, key findings from Pitney Bowes, based on an online survey of 3,000 adult consumers and 300 senior marketing decision-makers across five markets (Australia, France, Germany, the UK, and the US).
