In 2018, 30.89 percent of respondents stated that they use Facebook. In 2015, there were 19.31 million Facebook accounts registered to Italian users**. By 2021, this amount is projected to reach 23.51 million users.

Facebook enjoys the highest market share of any social network in Italy, claiming 87.76 percent of the market in 2016, compared with the 4.29 percent claimed by Twitter, their nearest rival.

In terms of social media penetration , Italy sits approximately in the middle of European nations as of January 2017.
