Internet Users now Over 4 Billion, Social Media Grows at 11 Users a Second

social media usage

In last month’s article, we pointed out that almost 1 million people started using social media over the course of 2017 (that’s equivalent to more than 11 new users every second!).

With a rate of uptake like this, it stands to reason that if your business is not on social media (or at least online in some form), you’re missing the boat. This month (download links below) we delve a little more into how social media is consumed across the various platforms.

WORLD’S INTERNET USERS PASS THE 4 BILLION MARK

The new 2018 Global Digital suite of reports from We Are Social reveals that there are now more than 4 billion people around the world using the internet. More than 3 billion people around the world now use social media each month, with 9 in 10 of those users accessing their chosen platforms via mobile devices.

Regional slides, scroll to the region you are interested in on the right pane and click on it for more details. To download the Global Overview report, click here.
