Planet Facebook boasts 2 billion users

July 31, 2017

Almost half the world’s population is online regularly and there are more monthly Facebook users than there are people in China.

Facebook’s quarterly earnings, released in July, show the number of monthly active users now tops 2 billion, more than one quarter of the world’s population – China’s populace accounts for a little over 18% of the global total.

Facebook Inc. doesn’t stop there though; the company is much more than its namesake social network. With WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger, it owns four of the world’s largest social media and messaging services.

While Facebook alone reaches more than 2 billion people per month, both WhatsApp and Messenger also passed the billion-user milestone recently.
