Almost 70% of Donegal businesses with websites are now using social media like Facebook and Twitter.

According to a Donegal based public relations company, Inis communications, who conducted the survey the findings show an awareness of social media.

Inis Communications director, Trish Hegarty, said they found that local businesses are actually updating their social media more regularly than their websites.

The survey found that 60% find it hard to create website content and that over two thirds want training or support with their social media content.

The survey results show that over 55% of those using social media update every week - with almost 20% updating every working day. In contrast, only 36% update their website more than once a week.
