Introduction

Social media has dramatically transformed the way we connect, communicate and share experiences. At the forefront of this digital revolution is Facebook, a US-based giant which holds the title as the world's largest and most widely accessed social network. Founded by Mark Zuckerberg and his colleagues at Harvard University in 2004, Facebook today boasts approximately 2.9 billion monthly active users, cementing its spot in the "Big Five" technological powerhouses.

This report explores data on Facebook users by country, providing a global view of the platform's influence and reach. 

  • India, with a whopping 314.6 million users, has the highest number of Facebook users, surpassing the second highest, United States, by a significant margin of nearly 140 million users.
  • The top five countries with the highest number of Facebook users – India, United States, Indonesia, Brazil, and Mexico – account for a massive user base of 802.4 million, indicating a concentrated user market in these regions.
  • In contrast to the dense population of internet users in East Asia, Japan ranks only the 30th, with a mere 15.1 million Facebook users. This is attributable to the popularity of local social networks, such as LINE.
