The popularity of Facebook is remarkable! Many people don’t ‘get’ Facebook however even the most passionate of sceptics cannot be amazed by how widely, and often, Facebook is used. Here are some of the amazing Facebook stats:
Facebook has hundreds of millions of signed-up users. Of that, 500 million are active (sign-in at least once per month) with 250 million logging on every day. Users have, on average, 130 ‘friends’ and people spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook. Over 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photo albums, etc.) are shared each month.
70% of users are from outside of the U.S.A. and communicate in over 70 languages. 150 million users access Facebook through mobile devices (e.g. iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android etc.) and these mobile users are twice as active on Facebook as non-mobile users. There are currently more than 550,000 active applications and over a million Websites integrate with Facebook.
