Forecast of Facebook user numbers in France 2015-2022

This statistic displays a forecast of the development in Facebook user numbers in France from 2015 to 2021. In 2021, the number of monthly active Facebook users is projected to reach 33.61 million individuals. This would be an increase of approximately three million new users from 30.39 million users in 2016. This equates to a growth of Facebook's penetration rate in France by 3,7 percent. All calculations and estimations by Statista were made in May 2016. The number of users includes all accounts by any individual that used Facebook via any device at least once a month as well as false and duplicate accounts. The statistic is part of a set of similar statistics that cover all EU-28 countries (except for Greece) and more across the world.
Compared to the data from the United States the French Facebook user penetration in 2021 will be an estimated 13.81 percent lower. The total number of social network users in France is with an expected 34.77 million users in 2021 barely higher than the expected Facebook user number, which illustrates the dominant hold of Facebook on the social media market in the country.
