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.
