The above graph represents the number of Facebook daily active users, worldwide, starting from Q1 2009 to the most recent quarter. As of Q2 2019, Facebook has 1.59 billion daily active users, globally. That’s a significant 8% YoY increase. The social media giant hardly managed to add 25 million new DAUs in Q2 2019 when compared to the previous quarter, probably due to the Cambridge-Analytica scandal.

A majority of Facebook DAUs come from the Asia-Pacific region. Another graph representing the growth in the number of Facebook DAUs by region clearly highlights the regional contribution of APAC, Europ, US & Canada, and Rest of the World in the overall growth of Facebook daily active users worldwide.
Facebook DAUs Worldwide: History
It was the first time in fiscal Q3 2015 when the number of Facebook DAUs had crossed 1 billion mark. By the end of September 30, 2015, about 1,007 million (1.01 billion) people were using Facebook on a daily basis.
After almost 3 years, in fiscal Q4 2018 Facebook passed another important milestone. About 1.52 billion people on average used Facebook in a single day, to connect with their friends and family.
Note: Facebook defines its daily active user as a registered Facebook user who logged in and visited Facebook through its website or a mobile device, or used its Messenger app, on a daily basis.
