Mark Zuckerberg’s social media company, Meta, has revealed that Facebook’s daily average users (DAUs) increased by 5% year on year to 2.09 billion in September this year. 

Meta disclosed this in its earnings report for Q3 2023.

According to the report, all the family of apps owned by the company, which include WhatsApp, Instagram, Messenger, and most recently, Threads, had total daily average users of 3.14 billion as of September, which was 7% growth year on year.  

This shows that Facebook is the most used of the Meta apps family.

With 2.09 billion DAUs, Facebook alone accounted for 66.5% of daily users across all Meta platforms.  

The company said it now has more than 3.9 billion people using at least one of its apps every month. 

With the increase in users, Meta posted a $34.15 billion revenue for Q3, representing an increase of 23% year-over-year. Meta said it also recorded a significant increase in ad impressions across its family of apps in the quarter under review. 

In a Wednesday earnings call on the Q3 results, Zuckerberg expressed satisfaction with Meta’s performance and shared the company’s plans for the coming year.  

Although Zuckerberg was quiet about it during the earnings call, the release of Meta’s Q3 results came a day after dozens of states in the United States filed a joint lawsuit against Meta over claims that Instagram and Facebook are affecting the mental health of young users.

The landmark lawsuit is challenging the addictive nature of Meta’s platforms and also claims that the company prioritizes profit at the expense of its users’ mental health.
