750 Million Facebook Users worldwide, 4.1 million in South Africa

3 month ago we announced that Facebook will soon hit the 4 million user mark in South Africa. At that moment Facebook had 3.904.420 active South African users. But it took longer than expected as you can see in the chart below.

In May 2011, Facebook “only” counted 3.797.180 users in South Africa. But this doesn’t mean that FB users deleted their accounts. If we talk of “users” we always mean “active users” who logged in to Facebook at least once within the last 30 days. We don’t know the exact reason why in May 100.000 less users logged in than in April. Most probably people in South Africa rather enjoyed the last warm days at the beach and on their surfboard than spending their time surfing on the web 😉

But finally we can tell that Facebook South Africa has more than 4 million active users:

User numbers increased by almost 300.000 over the May-July period, pushing the country’s total user base to 4.095.280.

    Wow 750 million users, it’s hard to think that Google Plus dares say they plan to overtake them. Personally I see it hard for people to shift gears when they are so adapted to Facebook now and Facebook clearly continues to grow.

    Amazing the growth in SA. I see Nedbank tapping into the FB crowd with their latest youth campaign. If you check it out let me know what you think http://bit.ly/wfekIt
