Facebook Users in India may Surpass USA

India is the third largest market for Facebook in terms of number of users. India follows Indonesia and USA which are second and first respectively. According to Facebooks VP, Vaughan Smith "we think that India will pass first Indonesia, which should happen soon, and then US,". India currently has 30 Million Facebook users and trails Indonesia which has around 45 Million users.

India is currently adding 5-7 Million internet users a month, and I can hardly think of anyone with internet access not using Facebook. So at this rate India might surpass Indonesia before end of the year. According to an IMRB and internet and Mobile Association of India, the country's internet population was 112 million in September, which is likely to go up to 121 million by the year end. At this rate, India will overtake the US, which has 245 million internet users, within two years, the survey adds.

Facebook currently has 800 Million users out of which more than 350 million active users currently access Facebook through their mobile devices.
