Facebook has shared new statistics revealing that 2.2 million Kenyans use Facebook every day and 4.5 million each month, while 7.1 million Nigerians use Facebook daily and 15 million are active every month.

Almost all these people are coming to Facebook on a mobile device: 100 percent of Nigerian monthly users are active on mobile as are 95 percent of Kenya's monthly users.

The move follows the recent announcement that Facebook's active user population in Africa has grown 20 percent to 120 million in June from 100 million in September 2014. More than 80 percent of these people access Facebook from their mobile phones. Now, 60 percent of all internet users in Africa are active on Facebook. Facebook recently opened its first office in Africa, focusing initially on Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.
