Among all social networking sites, Facebook plays an important role in nurturing the population of social networking users globally. As, in last one year Facebook users’ growth rate in countries like Brazil, India and Indonesia has been exponential. Also, users’ addiction as well as attraction towards social media titan is increasing steadily as it has better engagement model platform for independent as well as business brands.

In accordance to the graph, it has been found out that U.S. (141 million) will continue it’s legacy as the most populated country on Facebook , followed by India (68.1 million), Indonesia (49.1 million), Brazil (45.4 million) and Mexico (25.6 million) in 2012.

It has also been found that, in 2012, three out of top five global social networking markets are also leading the list of Facebook’s largest marketers; namely U.S., India and Brazil. However, countries like China and Russia – which are quite well placed in internet population – don’t contribute much in Facebook population. China has banned the use of other social networking sites than local but the recent changes in Facebook’s privacy policy may clear the growth path. Therefore, Facebook still has plenty of space to grow as it has many unexplored market to infuse.
