Forecast of Facebook user numbers in Italy 2015-2021 This statistic displays the number of Facebook users in Italy in 2015 and provides a forecast of the development till 2021.

This would be an increase of approximately 3.3 million new users from 20.25 million users in 2016. The data includes all accounts of all individuals using any device to access Facebook.

The numbers fluctuated in the previous two years but the hold on the Italian market has stabilized around 87.7 percent in the first half of 2016. Facebook's strongest Italian competitor Twitter only held a market share of 4,29 percent at the same time. The expected penetration rate of all social networks is only 2,05 percent than the Facebook penetration rate in 2021.
