(All figures represent the number of Unique Australian Visitors [UAVs] to that website over the monthly period unless otherwise stated).

Key Points To Note:

  • Growth in user numbers is fairly static across the social networks in Australia. 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 very popular as some users shift from using just traditional social media to more creative platforms.
  • 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.
