South Africa, Nigeria top Africa on Facebook daily active users

The number of Facebook daily active users (DAUs) has reached 7.3 million in South Africa (SA) in the second quarter of 2015, while Nigeria has 7.1 DAUs, according to official figures released this week by the popular US social media network.

SA also topped Nigeria in terms of mobile DAUs, cloaking 7 million, while Nigeria lags slightly behind with 6.9 million.

However, Africa’s largest economy surpasses the Southern African nation in terms of total monthly active users (MAUs), catching 15 million, with SA only making it with 12 million.

Kenya has also done well, reaching 2.2 million DAUs and 4.5 million MAUs, the report shows.

“At Facebook, we have a saying that we’re only 1% done, and this couldn’t be truer for Facebook in Africa. I’m only beginning this journey and already incredibly inspired by the power of connection – from the smallest moments to fostering global conversations,” Nunu Ntshingila, newly appointed Head of Africa at Facebook, said in a statement.

Facebook recently opened its first office in Africa to further the company’s commitment to help businesses connect with people and grow locally and regionally.

The new office is the next step in furthering Facebook’s investment in Africa and its people. The team in Africa will focus initially on Kenya (East Africa), Nigeria (West Africa) and SA (Southern Africa).

    Finding out that you or a love one is  HIV positive can be an incredibly shattering experience. And I think the reason for this is everyone is under the false assumption that the virus is not curable. Well, i totally disagree with this. I was diagnosed of HIV  for the past 5 years using the Antiviral drugs, with the curiosity and search for a permanent cure i came across a blog and i saw lot of testimonies  post from people making  references to DOCTOR BOADI  how he used his natural herbal medicine to cure them of their diseases Some testimonies was centered on;
    *HIV (with a very low cd4 count)
    I decided to give it a trial, though i never believed in herbal medicine but i was in a way convinced with the sort of amazing testimonies i saw online i decided to contact him, with the response he gave, He promised to prepare and send the “TATAHWE” Medicine to me. It was not up to a week after i placed an order, I got the medicine and he instructed me on how to drink the medicine( only evenings before bed) after which completely taking the medicine , I should go back to the hospital for a Re-Test. I followed his instructions and i discovered that my urine became yellowish for good two weeks so immediately i finished the medicine i went for the test the following week, it was very surprising i tested negative. I can’t thank dr Boadi enough, so I decided to promote him because he cured me from my disease, there’s no type of disease he can’t cure with his medicine. And i also want to use this medium to plead with our Government, they should try and encourage this doctors for God sake. well, you can relate with Dr Boadi on:

    thanks for your audience and i hope you find help like i did.
