World’s biggest social networking site just got bigger. There are around 2 billion users active on Facebook every month. That’s way above other social networks including YouTube’s 1.5 billion users and 1.2 billion users each on Facebook’s own WhatsApp and Messenger.
“This wouldn’t have happened without the millions of smaller communities and individuals who are sharing and making meaningful contributions every day,” said Mike Nowak, Product Director and Guillermo Spiller, Product Manager at Facebook. “Each day, more than 175 million people share a Love reaction, and on average, over 800 million people like something on Facebook. More than 1 billion people use Groups every month.“
Facebook massive growth has been fueled by developing nations in Asia Pacific and Africa. With the Facebook Lite mobile app, the company has made sure everyone, even with low bandwidth and low-cost smartphones get the best experience of its platform. The social network reached one billion monthly active users on September 14, 2012, at 12.45 PM Pacific time.
