Often in my ‘day job’, I find when writing proposals, presentations, white papers, etc, that some of the simplest of stats like “how many people use” something are next to impossible to find. I decided to do something about that.

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 August 2018 (the best I could find, at least). This list grows pretty regularly. It began with a simple listing of the 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,, 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 full report now includes over 1,100 listings and more are added annually.
