I try to go through each and every stat regularly and update as much as possible, but we all know that some stats are easier to track down than others. As always, every stat is linked to its original source and has the source date listed.

Report 1: Billion Users Club Report (Android, Apple, Facebook, Messenger, Google, Instagram, Microsoft, WeChat, WhatsApp, YouTube).

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Bing stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
