Social media has become such an important part of our lives that it’s no surprise that the number of users keeps growing and growing, including in these 10 countries with the most Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) and Instagram users.
The rise of the social networks over the past decade has set out a trend across the world. It’s not just Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat that are making history, but also other types of more localized networks such as China’s Weibo and Renren, or Russia’s VKontakte to name a few.
The most used, however, are the ones named above. Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) alone has 1.7 billion monthly active users, Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) about 313 million, and Instagram over 500 million. They’re a phenomena in their own right and paint an interesting picture of the world around us and its need to stay connected and informed even when life gets in the way.
The fact that Facebook, for instance, managed to reach 1.7 billion monthly users isn’t a surprise since the number has been climbing for a long time. In fact, for the past few years, Facebook has been the only social network to also give out a different metric – that of the number of daily unique users, which stands at 1.13 billion. It is one of the largest websites in the world!
For our list, we checked out the list of countries where each network has the largest number of users. Then, we wanted to know just what percentage of the population that number represented. We then ranked and handed out scores depending on their position before doing the math and coming up with the final scores. If instead of a number you find another marking, it means there’s currently no available data for it.
Without further ado, here are the 10 countries with the most Facebook, Twitter and Instagram users.
