Facebook Wants to Conquer the Globe: Next goal is having an additional 5 billion users

Facebook has more than 1.28 billion active users every month, and its plan is to become even more popular worldwide. According to iStrategyLabs, while some countries show huge Facebook activity, a number of countries still have a relatively small number of Facebook users. The map below shows worldwide Facebook activity:

As it can be seen on the map, the United States, Canada and the EU are at the top of the list. Together they count over 200 million users. India, Nigeria, Sudan and Japan, on the other hand, have small numbers. Malaysia, Argentina and Colombia all show good results, where half of the population is on Facebook.

So what limits the worldwide Facebook spread? Levels of overall internet use and poor infrastructure could be the main reasons. This total internet penetration map, by country, could give some clues:

The biggest difference in these two maps can be found among the countries that block Facebook, like China. But better infrastructure in India, Pakistan and Nigeria could bring hundreds of millions of new users. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder and CEO, says that connectivity is a human right, and that the number of global internet users should be tripled, adding 5 billion more in the near future. But, with Facebook just starting out in some countries, there is plenty of room to grow for this online social service.
