NEW DELHI: Social networking giant Facebook today said it is witnessing strong growth in the Indian market, adding users at a faster pace than in the US, and the country could become its largest base in coming years.
Adam Mosseri, VP of Product at Facebook, said the Indian market saw a 22 per cent growth last year, while the same in the US was “much slower than India”.
He, however, did not disclose the growth rate numbers for the American market.
“India could become larger than the US. By when, that is something I can’t say right now,” Mosseri added.
India has the second largest user base of Facebook with 155 million monthly active users. Of this, 77 million logged in every day at the end of June quarter.
At the end of the second quarter, daily actives on Facebook in India had grown 22 per cent year-on-year, compared with a 17 per cent increase in daily actives globally.
