The following infographic, from Visual Capitalist, puts the massive popularity of the biggest social media platforms in perspective.
The degree to which Facebook and its subsidiaries (Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger) dominate the enormous social media landscape is remarkable . Combined, the four platforms boast six billion monthly active users, compared to just four billion unqiue internet users in the world. While that six billion figures is double, triple, or quadruple counting users who use multiple Facebook platforms, it easily dwarfs all other platforms. Google owned Youtube, which is more video hosting platform than social media site, comes in second place with 1.9 billion monthly active users.
