6 Facebook Stats Then And Now 2010 To 2019

Hootsuite recently published 130+ Social Media Statistics that Matter to Marketers in 2019. I am sure there will be some interesting findings in the report, but I will only address data for Facebook in this post.  Actually, I want to compare the 2019 Facebook statistics to the statistics in the Changescapeweb.com post: Facebook reaches 500 Million active users that I posted July 5, 2010. Here we go …

This is a face-off by the numbers and these numbers have a lot of zeros. Nearly a decade later, Facebook 2010, up and coming social media fledgling is up against a much larger foe, the gargantuan colossus, Facebook 2019.
