Lower market share, higher revenues

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. This represents slightly less than a third of the company’s total European revenue.   

Growth in active users

During the first quarter of 2015 Facebook attracted 307 million MAUs, a figure that would rise to 381 million by the fourth quarter of 2018. Globally, Facebook had 2.38 billion MAUs in the first quarter of 2019.
