128 Million Americans Visit Facebook Every Day

Facebook announced on Tuesday that over 128 million people in the United States use the social networking platform every day, or more than 40% of Americans.  In the UK, 24 million visit Facebook daily.

101 Million Americans Access Facebook Daily via MobileOut of those who visit Facebook daily in the United States, 79%, or 101 million, do so via a mobile device (smartphone or tablet). In the UK, 20 million daily active users are visiting Facebook via mobile.

While most analysts focus on monthly active users, Facebook says that “daily use is a better measure of its value to advertisers,”  reports The New York Times.

Announcing the data is “part of a larger push to go after dollars earmarked for TV commercials, the top choice among advertisers when they launch campaigns.” (Reuters)
