Meanwhile, Instagram — which Facebook also owns — topped 250 million daily active users on Instagram Stories.and reached its own milestone earlier this month:
By comparison, Twitter had 328 million monthly users by the end of the first quarter of 2017, according to Statista.
“Each day, more than 175 million people share a Love reaction,” Facebook said in a blog post, “And on average, over 800 million people like something on Facebook.”
