It is the first day of Spring and today we post our monthly report, showing the most popular social media sites in Australia over August 2015.

As has been mentioned over the past couple months, growth in Australia has been fairly static across most networks. However we are still seeing Facebook and Instagram growing their userbase, and small niche apps coming along and gaining popularity.

Facebook in Australia

The global userbase of Facebook now stands at 1.49 billion monthly active users. In Australia we have 14 million monthly active users, or approx 0.93% of the total Facebook population, ie almost 1% of Facebook’s total audience in Australian.

Key Points to Note:

  • Most networks including Facebook and Instagram see no growth this month.
  • Yelp has seen a slight increase this month as people go on their midyear/ winter holidays.
  • Google Plus estimation has been revised to 55,000 Australian monthly users.
  • Foursquare and Swarm have frequent app updates however only there is only a very small number of Australian users, majority of the audience is based in the US/ Europe.
  • Tinder has been revised to 1.75 million users.
  • Tier 2 and Tier 3 networks continue to lose a small amount of users every month.
