Facebook user base soars in Nigeria

Social Network NigeriaBy OKORO CHINEDU
LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THERE are 15 million Nigerians using the popular
online social networking service, Facebook, every month.
 
According to the United States-based company, 7,1 million use the service daily.
 
All the Nigerians that use Facebook monthly are active on mobile.
 
This follows the recent announcement that Facebook’s active user
population in Africa has grown 20 percent to 120 million in June 2015 from
100 million in September 2014.
 
More than 80 percent of these people access Facebook from their mobile phones. 
Now, 60 percent of all Internet users in Africa are active on Facebook.
 
Nunu Ntshingila, newly appointed Head of Africa at Facebook, said at  Facebook, 
they had a saying they were “only 1 percent done.”
 
“This couldn’t be truer for Facebook in Africa. I’m only beginning this journey,
 and I’m already incredibly inspired by the power of connection from the smallest 
moments to fostering global conversations. Everyone on Facebook has a story, and I 
can’t wait to hear the stories from Kenya and Nigeria firsthand,” said Ntshingila.
 
Ari Kesisoglu, Facebook’s Regional Director for MEA, said the company was 
committed to creating solutions tailored to people and businesses in  Africa.
 
“We continue to spend time with businesses to learn about how we can work together 
to create better, more flexible and less fragmented ways for  businesses to reach 
people in Africa,” said Kesisoglu.
