Do a market research on Balkans and then merge the results to get some idea on which path should we follow
To be able to do that, we need to know what are we dealing with:

- How many users on Facebook and other social websites?
- How many hours people spend on internet(per week), per age of a person?
- What are the primary devices/interfaces for interacting with the Web (desktop browser, smart phone, ...)?
