FIND THOUSANDS OF REPORTS EXPLORING DIGITAL TRENDS IN EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD IN OUR FREE ONLINE LIBRARY:
!
The findings published in this report use the latest data available at the time of production. This may include revised figures
for historical data points that were not available when we published previous reports in the Global Digital Reports series.
From time to time, we may also change the data sources that we use to inform specific data points, and we may also change
how we calculate certain values. Similarly, our data partners may change the ways in which they source, calculate, or report
the data that they share with us. As a result, findings published in this report may not correlate with findings published
in our previous reports, especially where such findings represent change over time (e.g. annual growth). Where we report
figures for change over time, such figures will use the latest available data, so we recommend using the values published
in this report, rather than trying to recalculate such values using data from previous reports. Wherever we’re aware of the
potential for historical mismatches, we’ve included a note on comparability in the footnotes of each relevant slide. Please
read these advisories carefully to understand how data sources or calculations have changed since previous reports, and
beware of making any comparisons with historical data. In addition to changes in data sources and calculations, please
note that social media user numbers may not represent unique individuals. This is because some people may manage
multiple social media accounts, and because some social media accounts may represent ‘non-human’ entities (e.g. businesses,
animals, bands, etc.). As a result, the figures we publish for social media users may exceed the figures we publish for total
population or for internet users. This may seem counter-intuitive, but such differences do not represent mistakes. For more
information, please read our notes on data variance, mismatches, and curiosities: https://datareportal.com/notes-on-data.

WE ARE SOCIAL

BRAVE NEW WORLDS
You’ve heard about the metaverse, right? Actually, 87% of social
media users globally haven’t. But does that even matter, when
businesses from Facebook to Fortnite are vying to stake their
claim in it? What about web3? Or blockchain? Do you know what
an NFT is?
As we’ve renegotiated our relationship with digital in the wake of
Covid-19, from the fringes of the internet, a wealth of new terms
have become mainstays in the marketing press and mainstream
media alike, rushing to alleviate the tensions of our new reality .
We’re at a tipping point, and the gold rush is in full swing.
We’re stepping into Brave New Worlds.
In the seventh issue of our annual report Think Forward, we
unpick the complex and ever-changing web of digital culture and
behaviour, and explore the role brands can play in reflecting and
shaping it.
The report was informed by ongoing intelligence from our global
Cultural Insights team, and supported by a survey of 3,000 people
aged 18+ who use social media daily from the US, UK, France,
Italy, China and Australia.

In Q4 2021, Meta made some important changes to how its self-service tools report the
potential advertising reach of its platforms, including a move to publishing audience figures as
a range instead of as an absolute number. Our analysis suggests that Meta also revised its base
data, resulting in some important corrections to published audience figures for Facebook and
Messenger. As a result, we are currently unable to provide any figures for changes over time in
these platforms’ audiences, and we advise readers not to compare the advertising audience
figures for Facebook and Messenger contained within this report with figures published for
those platforms in previous reports. For more information, please read our complete notes on
data variance, potential mismatches, and curiosities: https://datareportal.com/notes-on-data.

Definitive data and analysis
for the mobile industry
Prior to our Digital 2021 reports, we included data
sourced from social media platforms’ self-service
advertising tools in our calculations of internet user
numbers, but we no longer include this data in our
internet user figures. This is because the user numbers
reported by social media platforms are typically based
on active user accounts, and may not represent unique
individuals. For example, one person may maintain
more than one active presence (account) on the same
social media platform. Similarly, some accounts may
represent ‘non-human’ entities, including: pets and
animals; historical figures; businesses, causes, groups,
and organisations; places of interest; etc.
As a result, the figures we report for social media users
may exceed internet user numbers. However, while this
may seem counter-intuitive or surprising, such instances
do not represent errors in the data or in our reporting.
Rather, these differences may indicate delays in the
reporting of internet user numbers, or they may indicate
higher instances of individuals managing multiple
social media accounts, or ‘non-human’ social media
accounts.

points in these reports, or if you’d like to offer your

footnotes of each relevant chart, but please use caution
when comparing data from different reports, because
changes to research samples, base data, research
methodologies, and approaches to reporting may
mean that values are not comparable.
Furthermore, due to the differing data collection and
treatment methodologies, and the different periods
during which data have been collected, there may be
significant differences in the reported metrics for similar
data points throughout this report. For example, data
from surveys often varies over time, even if that data
has been collected by the same organisation using the
same approach in each wave of their research.
In particular, reports of internet user numbers vary
considerably between different sources and over time.
In part, this is because there are significant challenges
associated with collecting, analysing, and publishing
internet user data on a regular basis, not least because
research into public internet use necessitates the use of
face-to-face surveys. Different organisations may also
adopt different approaches to sampling the population
for research into internet use, and variations in areas
such as the age range of the survey population, or the
balance between urban and rural respondents, may
play an important role in determining eventual findings.
Note that COVID-19 has limited internet user research.
Note: This page is a summary of our comprehensive
notes on data variance, potential mismatches,
and curiosities, which you can read in full at
https://datareportal.com/notes-on-data.
This report features data from a wide variety of
different sources, including market research agencies,
internet and social media companies, governments,
public bodies, news media, and private individuals, as
well as extrapolations and analysis of that data.
Wherever possible, we’ve prioritised data sources
that provide broader geographical coverage, in
order to minimise potential variations between data
points, and to offer more reliable comparison across
countries. However, where we believe that standalone
metrics provide a more reliable reference, we use such
standalone numbers to ensure more accurate reporting.
Please note that some data points may only be
available for a limited selection of countries, so we
may not be able to report the same data in all reports.
From time to time, we may also change the source(s)
that we use to inform specific data points. As a result,
some figures may appear to change in unexpected
ways from one report to another. Wherever we’re
aware of these changes, we include details in the

  • 5. ! The findings published in this report use the latest data available at the time of production. This may include revised figures for historical data points that were not available when we published previous reports in the Global Digital Reports series. From time to time, we may also change the data sources that we use to inform specific data points, and we may also change how we calculate certain values. Similarly, our data partners may change the ways in which they source, calculate, or report the data that they share with us. As a result, findings published in this report may not correlate with findings published in our previous reports, especially where such findings represent change over time (e.g. annual growth). Where we report figures for change over time, such figures will use the latest available data, so we recommend using the values published in this report, rather than trying to recalculate such values using data from previous reports. Wherever we’re aware of the potential for historical mismatches, we’ve included a note on comparability in the footnotes of each relevant slide. Please read these advisories carefully to understand how data sources or calculations have changed since previous reports, and beware of making any comparisons with historical data. In addition to changes in data sources and calculations, please note that social media user numbers may not represent unique individuals. This is because some people may manage multiple social media accounts, and because some social media accounts may represent ‘non-human’ entities (e.g. businesses, animals, bands, etc.). As a result, the figures we publish for social media users may exceed the figures we publish for total population or for internet users. This may seem counter-intuitive, but such differences do not represent mistakes. For more information, please read our notes on data variance, mismatches, and curiosities: https://datareportal.com/notes-on-data. IMPORTANT NOTES ON COMPARING DATA

Actually, 87% of social media users globally haven’t. But does that even matter, when businesses from Facebook to Fortnite are vying to stake their claim in it? What about web3? Or blockchain? Do you know what an NFT is? As we’ve renegotiated our relationship with digital in the wake of Covid-19, from the fringes of the internet, a wealth of new terms have become mainstays in the marketing press and mainstream media alike, rushing to alleviate the tensions of our new reality . We’re at a tipping point, and the gold rush is in full swing. We’re stepping into Brave New Worlds. In the seventh issue of our annual report Think Forward, we unpick the complex and ever-changing web of digital culture and behaviour, and explore the role brands can play in reflecting and shaping it. The report was informed by ongoing intelligence from our global Cultural Insights team, and supported by a survey of 3,000 people aged 18+ who use social media daily from the US, UK, France, Italy, China and Australia.

  • 36. ! In Q4 2021, Meta made some important changes to how its self-service tools report the potential advertising reach of its platforms, including a move to publishing audience figures as a range instead of as an absolute number. Our analysis suggests that Meta also revised its base data, resulting in some important corrections to published audience figures for Facebook and Messenger. As a result, we are currently unable to provide any figures for changes over time in these platforms’ audiences, and we advise readers not to compare the advertising audience figures for Facebook and Messenger contained within this report with figures published for those platforms in previous reports.

  • 58. Prior to our Digital 2021 reports, we included data sourced from social media platforms’ self-service advertising tools in our calculations of internet user numbers, but we no longer include this data in our internet user figures. This is because the user numbers reported by social media platforms are typically based on active user accounts, and may not represent unique individuals. For example, one person may maintain more than one active presence (account) on the same social media platform. Similarly, some accounts may represent ‘non-human’ entities, including: pets and animals; historical figures; businesses, causes, groups, and organisations; places of interest; etc. As a result, the figures we report for social media users may exceed internet user numbers. However, while this may seem counter-intuitive or surprising, such instances do not represent errors in the data or in our reporting. Rather, these differences may indicate delays in the reporting of internet user numbers, or they may indicate higher instances of individuals managing multiple social media accounts, or ‘non-human’ social media accounts. If you have any questions about specific data points in these reports, or if you’d like to offer your organisation’s data for consideration in future reports, please email our reports team: reports@kepios.com. footnotes of each relevant chart, but please use caution when comparing data from different reports, because changes to research samples, base data, research methodologies, and approaches to reporting may mean that values are not comparable. Furthermore, due to the differing data collection and treatment methodologies, and the different periods during which data have been collected, there may be significant differences in the reported metrics for similar data points throughout this report. For example, data from surveys often varies over time, even if that data has been collected by the same organisation using the same approach in each wave of their research. In particular, reports of internet user numbers vary considerably between different sources and over time. In part, this is because there are significant challenges associated with collecting, analysing, and publishing internet user data on a regular basis, not least because research into public internet use necessitates the use of face-to-face surveys. Different organisations may also adopt different approaches to sampling the population for research into internet use, and variations in areas such as the age range of the survey population, or the balance between urban and rural respondents, may play an important role in determining eventual findings. Note that COVID-19 has limited internet user research. Note: This page is a summary of our comprehensive notes on data variance, potential mismatches, and curiosities, which you can read in full at https://datareportal.com/notes-on-data. This report features data from a wide variety of different sources, including market research agencies, internet and social media companies, governments, public bodies, news media, and private individuals, as well as extrapolations and analysis of that data. Wherever possible, we’ve prioritised data sources that provide broader geographical coverage, in order to minimise potential variations between data points, and to offer more reliable comparison across countries. However, where we believe that standalone metrics provide a more reliable reference, we use such standalone numbers to ensure more accurate reporting. Please note that some data points may only be available for a limited selection of countries, so we may not be able to report the same data in all reports. From time to time, we may also change the source(s) that we use to inform specific data points. As a result, some figures may appear to change in unexpected ways from one report to another. Wherever we’re aware of these changes, we include details in the NOTES ON DATA VARIANCE, MISMATCHES, AND CURIOSITIES
