By the Numbers: 200+ Amazing Facebook User Statistics

facebook user statistics

Here are a bunch of amazing Facebook user statistics that illustrate just how vast their digital empire is. Updated for January 2015.

Update: I have added a bunch of new Facebook statistics, and also broke this post out into four posts. The original post for all Facebook stats was getting a bit cumbersome and tough to navigate as it eclipsed 300 stats. Hopefully, this new format will help you find the 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.
