Facebook: India overtakes the USA to become top country

India is now Facebook's largest country audience.

Facebook is reporting a potential audience of 241 million active users in India and 240 million active users in the USA.  Despite the high number, this means that just 19% of the Indian population are using Facebook every month compared to 73% of US citizens.

There is also a strong gender imbalance in India where three-quarters of users report their gender as male compared to 46% of US-users being male.

Over half of the Indian users are under-25.

Facebook has also exceeded two billion monthly users.
