This Is How Much You Are Worth To Facebook.

Last week, Facebook showed everyone why they are called the Social media king.
In its earning report, the social media giant revealed that it had made $8.4bn revenue in the 4th quarter of 2015 thanks to its 1.59 billion monthly user base who view and click on tailored ads gotten from the information they provide.
However, TheGuardian made another revelation, which irked me a bit, you will find out why shortly.
It was revealed how much a Facebook user is worth based on location. For example, in America, an individual is worth $13.94, but in Africa, it might be hard to decipher the worth thanks to the “rest of the world” tag as seen in the diagram:
Despite this, I think it is amazing to see the milestones Mark Zuckerberg has achieved with Facebook. If only he can teach Twitter the secret formula.

    But how does a whatsapp make money when they don’t run ads

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Whatsapp doesn’t generate direct revenue as it doesn’t sell ads. However, it does generate a lot of investment. Plus the same way Facebook is using Big data to sell ads, Whatsapp is looking to do that but not with third-party advertisements like intrusive banner and interstitials, instead, it will explore ways businesses can use WhatsApp to connect with individuals. So for now, investments and Big data, future, a different advertisement model to connect business and individual via the data they have.

      i was thinking, the only way whatsapp makes money is when your 12 month free version expires which requires that you will pay for the next 12 month use
      but since whatsapp have announce that their service is now free. i dont know which other way they make money.

    … Well, Mark has definitely made the mark and he’s still making it. WhatsApp can grow better. And anyone can help me tell Zuckerberg that we need an update to save pictures directly from instagram…

          You just defeated the purpose of me visiting your blog by what you said, what part of an app didn’t you see in my comment, so why are you telling me to download OG Instagram when I clearly stated that you can do that with an app.
          You need to upgrade your tech skilss, cos OG Instagram is a third party app not a native ap.
          No offense intended here
