Facebook's first quarter of 2018 sales grew 49 percent from first quarter 2017 sales. According to the Facebook report, the social media company had a big jump in revenue of $ 11.966 billion in the first quarter of 2018 of the $ 8,032 billion it recorded at the same time last year. Perhaps not surprisingly, most of this revenue comes from advertising, with the report listing that of the total revenue mentioned above, advertising brought in $ 11.795 billion, while the remaining $ 171 million came from payments and other fees. Total revenue was not the only area Facebook has risen in. Daily active users were also for the month of March this year, and compared with last year Facebook says there were 13 percent more users every day the social platform bounce when there was in 2017. This exact number according to the report reaches a total of 1.45 billion users on average. "Average" is the keyword to pay a little attention, since 1 , 45 billion was not necessarily the exact number of users who came to Facebook each March, but only the majority of the month.
Monthly active users also saw an increase that actually coincided with the number of users daily on Facebook as Facebook reported an increase of 13 percent compared to the previous year, but the total is different from $ 1.45 billion and reaches $ 2.2 billion, even though Facebook is already ahead of Yes When launching them on desktop computers, most Facebook users now choose to engage with the platform via mobile devices, which is reflected in 91 percent of Facebook's advertising revenue (as mentioned above), which accounts for the largest share of total revenue first quarter of this year comes from the Mobile Advertising Placement. This is a hurdle for the 85 percent ad revenue that came from mobile last year. At the very least, Facebook's revenue makes a lot of money to show how much competition Google generates in terms of advertising revenue. Although Facebook is still a social platform where users can share and publish news about their lives, Facebook is also a commercial, and that's unlikely to change.
