Facebook Should Surpass 160 Million Users Today  

Posted by: shilpz in , ,

Earlier this month we wrote about Facebook surpassing 150 million users. If the growth has in fact continued at the same pace, if not a greater pace, the company should register their 160 millionth user today. Alexa suggests that the company’s growth rate has in fact been increasing which means the company could have surpassed 160 million users prior to today.

Facebook has been updating the numbers reported by their advertising platform on a regular basis as reflected by our Facebook demographics tool. Facebook’s reporting combined with our own algorithm would suggest that the company has reached at least 157.8 million if not 160 million. We are expecting Facebook to update their internal estimates within the next couple days to reflect this growth.

I previously posted about Facebook demographics based on market saturation which illustrated Iceland, Canada, Denmark, and Norway as the highest Facebook population by density. As usual, we will continue to track the number of users on Facebook and update those numbers as reflected by the company.

Have you been noticing rapid growth among your own friends?
