Here are a bunch of amazing Facebook statistics that illustrate just how vast their digital empire is. Updated for November 2015.
Facebook is the largest social network in the world with over a billion and a half monthly active users. With a platform as feature-rich and widely-used as Facebook’s there are countless stats that can be tracked. I try to identify the most interesting ones I find and add them to the following list when I do. I hope you find some of these tallies as interesting and amazing as I do.
Update: I have added a bunch of new Facebook stats and also broke this post out into four separate posts. The original post for all Facebook stats was getting a bit cumbersome and tough to navigate as it eclipsed 400 stats. Hopefully, this new format will help you find that stat you are looking for much quicker. You can find the additional pages linked at the bottom of this list.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. Many of these Facebook statistics come from the company’s own financial filings, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
