CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    Background of the Study
    The power of the social media in the 21st century in transforming the social system cannot be over emphasized. The social media has been described as one of the most effective sources of social change in recent times due to the major role it has played in the political religious, economical, educational and social cultural spheres of the society (Ebosatela, 2009). Infact, any organization that does not utilize the power of the social media in this time, could be regarded as backward and unprogressive.
    Ojo (2010) opines that the benefits to be derived from social media are innumerable, they include that the social media is an easy way to learn about your customers, social media helps target audiences more effectively, helps find new customers and expand your audience, allows you to receive instant feedback from your customers, improve market intelligence and helps you get ahead of your customers, share content easier and faster, create meaningful relationships with customers, helps increase your brand awareness etc.
One major area in which the social media has been very effective is in the discourse, that it is a conduit of beneficial information to entrepreneurs (Smith, 2011). Entrepreneurship is the lifeblood of the Nigerian economy. It is the cradle of job and wealth creation in the most innovative ways.
The prosperity and progress of a nation, depends on the quality of its people (Adeyemi, 2012). If they are enterprising, ambitious, and courageous enough to bear the risk, the community/society will develop quickly. Such people are identified as entrepreneurs and their character reflects entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is no monopoly of any religion or community (Timus, 2009). Entrepreneurial potential can be found and developed any where irrespective of age, qualification, experience, or socio-economic background, only efforts are required in the right direction.
    Entrepreneurship may not be regarded as a sufficient condition for growth activity, but is surely a necessary condition (Destipande, 2008), hence it must be given top priority in the national programmes of a country. It is widely acknowledged in entrepreneurship literature that entrepreneurship is about people who realize new opportunities. Entrepreneurs are persistent, passionate, adaptable and able to take risks. As a result, entrepreneurship can occur in a range of environments. However, at the core of entrepreneurship lies the creation of new business ventures by individuals or teams (Murthy, 2010).
    A small business unit, is thus an enterprise, its owner, an entrepreneur and his activities are the entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is a human activity development. It indicates the spirit of enterprise. Such spirit transforms the man from a nomad to a cattle reared, to a settled agriculturist, to a trader and an industrialist (Jeng 2006:54).
    Therefore, anything that will play a role in the development of entrepreneurship in Nigeria is a welcome development. Social media like twitter, allow entrepreneurs to locate their current customers or seek out potential customers (Simon, 2012). For example, if you open a bakery in your neighbourhood, you can create a geo- search in Hootsuite to locate anyone tweeting bread, you can start reaching out to them and invite them to come and try your bread in the bakery. Despite all these benefits inherent in social media, entrepreneurs are finding it difficult in integrating social media in the development of their business. It is based on this backdrop that the researcher wants to examine social media as a tool for growth of entrepreneurship in Enugu Metropolis.
1.2    Statement of the Problem
    The consequences of not integrating social media in entrepreneurship development are devastating. Entrepreneurs in Enugu metropolis have not really adopted social media in the day to day running of their businesses. This has resulted in decline in profitability. Social media is a powerful tool of being in contact with so may people. When not fully adopted the entrepreneurs in Enugu have lost this opportunity of increasing their net profit base.
    Difficulty in increasing customer base is another problem facing entrepreneurs as a result of not adopting social media in their business. This is because, social media is known to have the ability of assisting entrepreneurs to locate many customers in their business.
    Inability to increase brand awareness is another problem facing entrepreneurs as a result of not adopting social media. This is because through social media, entrepreneurs can advertise their brand to so many customers.  
1.3    Objectives of the Study

2.    What is the relationship between social media and customer base of entrepreneurs in Enugu metropolis?
