Twitter is still the most popular social media site on the planet, according to a new report by Statista, with a staggering 51.4% of US adults using the platform.
The figure comes after the number of active users in the United States rose to an all-time high of nearly 9 billion users, according a report released earlier this year.
Statista’s numbers for the US total, which includes countries and territories, also show a spike in social network users across the globe.
A staggering 71.2% of the world’s population now uses a social network, up from 61.3% in 2016.
It’s not just the US that’s on fire with social media users.
The UK saw its social media use soar to more than 12 million users in 2017, up 23% from 2016, Statista found.
Facebook’s growth rate is also higher than any other social media platform.
Its user base increased by over 50% in the past year, with an increase of almost 5.3 million users from 2016 to 2017.
The US also saw the most rapid increase in its social network usage.
Its total number of users increased by more than 4 million users over the past five years, while its overall usership increased by almost 6 million.
