According to the infographic, about 31% of the world population is on social media while the highest usage comes from North and South America, at 59% and 50% of the population respectively.

Africa, Central, and South Asia are the regions with the lowest usage of social media and therefore the biggest areas for potential growth for social media demographics in the years to come. Usage in these regions is expected to change fairly rapidly as access to the internet and smartphones increases.

However, as access to internet services grows in some regions, social media usage does not increase at the same rate. From 2014 to 2016, the percentage of the world population with internet access grew from 35% to 46%. During this same period, the number of people who use social media only grew from 26% to 31%.
