Social Media Statistics Australia – January 2016

Statistics compiled by SocialMediaNews.com.au for January 2016.
____________

Today we post our first report with 2016 numbers and as predicted we’ve seen an important increase from Facebook.

Facebook has reached 15 million users in Australia. According the Australian Bureau of Statistics there are now approximately 24 million Australians. This means 62.5% of the total Australian population has a Facebook account. This is a huge statistic in itself.

(All figures represent the number of Unique Australian Visitors [UAVs] to that website over the monthly period – unless otherwise stated above).

Key Points to Note:

  • As I have mentioned over my past reports, a Facebook increase was expected and we’ve seen an increase of 1 million users over the last couple months. This is now reflected in their advertising tool.
  • Travel related social networks will increase their users over the summer months
  • Many of the smaller networks ranked 10+ continue to lose users every month and they don’t provide enough interest for people to return over and over.
  • Tinder nears the 2 million user mark in Australia.
