Facebook Has Over 1.5 Billion Users Even Without Counting 3rd Party Apps

Wow: Facebook no longer counts 3rd party apps and yet still has over 1.5 billion users. “Some say Facebook inflates its monthly active user count by including people who shared from or used a Facebook-connected third-party app. But today Facebook quieted those critics with a 10-Q update to its SEC filing that says it now only counts people who used Facebook or Messenger directly. That means the 1.55 billion user count it gave yesterday on its earning report is real.”
