Key Points To Note:

  • Growth in user numbers is fairly static across the social networks in Australia. We see small movements up and down each month for the more popular social networks.  We don’t expect this trend to change.
  • For the month, Facebook did not report any gain in users.
  • Blogging sites such as WordPress and Tumblr remain popular as some users shift from traditional social media channels to more creative platforms that allow much more customisation and hosting of content.
  • There has been some speculation around the industry that apps like Tinder, Grinder etc get over 1 million Australian visitors/users per month. Getting Australian app data is near impossible so when hearing such figures, take them with a grain of salt. But I do believe popular iTunes/Android apps in Australian can top 1 million users per month, just look at Instagram, Snapchat etc.
  • A few people have asked me, I think Tinder has probably got over 1 million Australian sign-ups, but how many are using the app now? I think user churn is significant on this platform.
