2: The U.S. leads with 155 million users, while Facebook's total global user base of over 800 million, if measured as a country, makes it the third most populous country in the world after China and India's billion-plus populations.
India's base is notable given that Internet penetration is still nascent, estimated at about 120 million users.
Total Facebook Users 61699860
Position in the list 3
Penetration of population 5.26%
Penetration of online population 67.18%
