Facebook UK

   Facebook UK Limited generated approximately 211 million British pounds in revenue during 2015, a figure that skyrocketed to 1.27 billion British pounds in 2017. According to Facebook UK, this was the results of the company commencing advertiser reseller services on April 2016. This represents slightly less than a third of the company’s total European revenue.     

Growth in European active users
