ABSTRACT. The current study supports previous research (e.g. Abbasi and Alghamdi, 2017; Brailovskaia and Margraf, 2017; Casale and Fioravanti, 2018; Frison et al., 2018; O’Sullivan and Hussain, 2017; Turel, Brevers, and Bechara, 2018; Vanman, Baker, and Tobin, 2018; Young et al., 2017) claiming that more demanding utilization of Facebook may raise the risk of health issues. Using data from Business Insider, Edison Research, Facebook, Internet World Stats, KPCB, Pew Research Center, Piper Jaffray, Retrevo, Statista, and Triton Digital, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding teens’ most important social network, the percent of online adults who use certain social media websites, Facebook’s daily active users as a percentage of monthly active users, the percent of social networking websites’ users who ever gets news on the site, and the percent of global population using Facebook by region.
