Facebook’s new data dump: up to 1.55bn users, Instagram 400m, Whatsapp 900m, Messenger 700m

New Facebook Q3 numbers

Facebook last night released its new results for the last quarter, and the user numbers are worth brushing up on. Facebook has grown by 60 million active users in the last three months, still by a long shot the biggest social network globally. It now has 8 million daily video views, which has doubled in the last six months, 1.007 billion active users every day, and as many are shifting from the public news feed, ie traditional part of Facebook, over to Messenger, ie the private part, this is where a lot of the action is. Having opened up Facebook Messenger as a platform, there is a huge amount of activity and growth there too.

The full stats are worth a read, especially because WhatsApp and Instagram are part of the quarterly update too.
