Throughout 2012, several countries experienced a significant growth in user volumes on Facebook. Some of these changes have contributed to the shift in the overall ranking of continents!

Facebook’s landscape was completely transformed in 2012. North America officially lost its dominant position and dropped down to number three, as Asia surpassed it in May. Asia continued to grow, overtaking Europe in August, becoming the biggest Facebook continent with currently over 278 million Facebook users.

According to the latest regional report, Guaraná Antartica and Skol still belong to Brazil´s top social brands.
