Facebook 500 million users

Apparently facebook now has 500 million users.  The geographical disparity of users makes for interesting reading, especially when looking at who is topping the growth charts in the last few months.  Africa is riding the wave … the top 6 countries in terms of facebook growth in the last 12 weeks are Angola, DRC, Nigeria, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Tanzania.

This means that brands targeting Africans need to sit up and take notice of the take up of facebook in African communities – mobile users are more active than desktop users.  See the full figures below.
