For the first time an application outside Google has exceeded 5 billion downloads and that application is Facebook.
While it has begun to lose impact among consumers, Facebook continues to cause great interest among social network users.
However, the growth of other social networks has been much more effective.
The powerful penetration of social networks within the functions and use of mobile applications is undeniable and it is easy to understand the success that Facebook has achieved over more than 16 years.
Perhaps that is why it is not surprising that the flagship brand of the conglomerate of digital brands led by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, has already become the application with the highest number of downloads through Android devices.
According to information from the Android Police site, for the first time an application outside Google has exceeded 5 billion downloads and that application is Facebook.
While it has begun to lose impact among consumers, Facebook continues to cause great interest among social network users. According to the Digital In 2019 report, prepared by We Are Social, at the beginning of 2019, Facebook was still the one with the highest number of users, registering 2 271 million and an increase of 5 percent over the previous year.
However, the growth of other social networks has been much more effective, for example, WhatsApp grew by 15 percent and registered 1.5 billion users around the world. Instagram, meanwhile, grew by 25 percent by registering 1 billion users. But we talk about applications that are part of the conglomerate of brands that lead Facebook and Zuckerberg.
For its part, YouTube, from Google, is still the second social network with number of subscribers and registered at the beginning of this year 1, 900 million and an increase of 27 percent. And behind them are others that have acquired greater impact, such as TikTok, which without so much antiquity already had the 500 million users who enjoy the short videos that they can develop in this social network.
