The same is true for South Africa and Kenya with a very high percentage of their citizens accessing Facebook via mobile devices and contributing 12 million monthly active users and 4.5 million monthly active users respectively to the pool of Facebook users.

Back in June of 2015, the company reported that there was a 20% increase in the number of Africans that joined Facebook since September of 2014, rising from 100 million to 120 million. The increase in internet penetration through mobile in Africa led Facebook to establish its first office in Africa at Johannesburg, South Africa to help it gain product insight and marketing revenue from the African continent.
