Four different types of graph charts are shown here. The first one is a geographic bubble chart that displays the number of users per region based on the size of the bubble. The larger the bubble, the larger number of Facebook users that particular region has. 8 different geographic regions are shown including North America, Caribbean, Central/South America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Oceania.
The second chart shows the growth in number of users. It takes the shape of the common S-shape graph that shows tremendous growth and then eventually tapers off at a certain limit. It makes sense that since there are a limited number of peopl on the planet that actually use the internet, that number would serve as the upper limit of how big Facebook can get in terms of active users.
The third graph shows that Facebook took longer to reach 25 million unique visitors than its competitors MySpace, Twitter, and Google+ did. Actually, Google+ was able to reach 25 million users in just under a month.
Although Facebook started in North America (specifically, Harvard's undergraduate dorm), Facebook actually does not have the most users in North America. In fact, two other regions shown on the map have greater number of users than North America does.
