Some interesting stats from Messenger in 2017. Besides these non-comprehensible numbers like 1.7 billion emojis being shared every day, what strikes me most are the group stats. 2.5 million groups are created every day, with an average size of 10 participants. These are private micro-networks, where every message is develivered to every participant, the "feed" is organized by time instead of an algorithm, and the content remains in a confined space. If you wonder where these very private posts by your friends on Facebook have gone, it's there.
