A regularly updated list with user numbers of major sites and apps

Everybody who writes or talks about digital technology is occasionally in need of the latest user numbers of major online services and platforms.

A while ago I created a list for myself to keep track of those metrics. Eventually I published it in German on the site I wrote for previously. I realized that I should continue this “tradition” over here. For my own benefit and for yours. My recommendation: Bookmark this page for quick access in the future. I will try to update the list at least once a month.

As a side note: If you like a weekly digest of my articles and link lists, you can sign up here for the newsletter.
