Africa And The Facebook Craze

Facebook has become an integral part of the lives of millions across the globe. Pretty much everyone with access to a computer or smartphone has a profile on the social network and, somewhat sadly, tend to play out their daily lives through it.

In the latest Facebook statistics gathered by Social Bakers, it was found that just over 50 million Africans are users of the site. When put into perspective, that means 5% of the continent’s total population of roughly 1 billion is registered and active on Facebook.

Now for the burning question: which country in Africa has the most Facebook users and who comes in close behind them? Well, my stats say approximately half-a million Ugandans use Facebook thats why they did not put the Pearl of Africa on the chart below.
