facebook and youtube users
YouTube just announced it has over 1.8 billion monthly logged-in users. The only social platform with more logged-in users than the Google subsidiary is Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), which just ended the first quarter with nearly 2.2 billion monthly active users.
While Facebook is adding users at a respectable 13% year over year, YouTube just increased its user count 20% in about 10 months. It last reported 1.5 billion users last summer, putting its annual growth rate nearly twice as fast as Facebook's. That's absolutely astonishing considering the size of YouTube and the fact that Facebook (and other big names) are spending heavily on digital video content.
