Who's Who on Facebook in 2018

Facebook is on everyone’s mind lately. Whether you love it, hate it, or don’t really have an opinion, you know it’s a powerhouse and has the ability to reach millions. Your mom is on it, your great aunt is on it, your grade school best friend is on it. But who else is on there? Who else is using the social media platform?

As of March 2018, Facebook has 2.13 billion active monthly users. Seventy-nine percent of Americans use the platform, and a little more than half use it several times a day. Fifty million businesses use Facebook Pages and posts on these pages have a 3.2% organic reach.

Facebook Demographic Statistics:

  • 83% of users are women

  • 75% of users are men
