Social media giant Facebook crosses 2 billion monthly active users
Facebook is the largest social networking site with 2 billion users. The platform recently declared that the site managed to cross the 2 billion active user line. Only Facebook has this immense number of users.
The Social media giant claimed that in the previous year 250 million new accounts were made.
In all those previous years US remained on the top of charts of the active users on Facebook. This year the country is overtaken by India. India has 241 million users.
The both countries are in great competition. Though India topped US by the ratio increase of 27% of India and 12% of US.
The increase in the number can be partly credited to the Facebook Lite app. More people now use Facebook and thus the number of Facebook users have increased to a large number.
