By the Numbers: 35 Amazing Yahoo Statistics

Yahoo statistics

I get a lot of requests for new stat posts these days and one of the most requested companies is usually Yahoo. Makes sense since Yahoo is one of the oldest, largest and most visible digital companies around. Problem is, they aren’t all that forthcoming with their stats. Even though they are a publicly traded company, their reports generally focus on financials with just a few cherry-picked users stats mixed in. Even their blog(s) contain very little data and the few user stats they do include on their blog and various websites are usually over a year old.

Ever wondered how many people use your favorite social network, app or digital service? You’re in luck.

Here is my monthly, running tally of how many people are using some of the top social media, digital services and mobile apps updated for January 2015 (the best I could find, at least). This list grows pretty regularly. It began with a simple listing of some of the obvious social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype, YouTube, WhatsApp, etc; then grew to include digital services like Amazon, Google, eBay, Netflix and Pandora; then the focus turned to APAC social and digital properties like Weibo, WeChat, JD.com, LINE and Renren; and lately, I have been focused on updating current listings, adding in new ones along with smaller niche ones that I may have overlooked at the beginning. This post now includes over 800 listings and more are added almost weekly.
