Whether it’s liking photos, commenting, getting your news or looking for deals, the world spends quite a bit of time on Facebook each day. The average amount of time spent on the social platform is 20 minutes per day across the world, but people in the U.S. tend to spend double that per day.
But Facebook isn’t just about commenting on cute baby photos and checking out your high school friend’s spring break photos. You can totally justify some of your time spent on the site if you’re also finding great deals, saving money and, hey, possibly even scoring freebies!
Here’s a list of 17 companies worth following if you’re looking to save money:
