Today, Inside Facebook has released the July 2009 edition of the Facebook Global Monitor – tracking Facebook’s growth in global markets. The Facebook Global Monitor tracks Facebook’s international growth for marketers, developers, and analysts to spot trends and opportunities. A few highlights from the June report’s findings:

  • Facebook’s reach grew by 35% in Brazil during the last 30 days – Orkut’s home turf – to over 1 million monthly active users. Facebook also grew by 37% in India during June – the number of Facebook users in India has doubled in the last 90 days.
  • Facebook crossed the 10 million active user mark in Italy last week. Over 17% of all people in Italy are now active on Facebook every month.
  • The number of Facebook users in China grew by 60% last month. While the total number of active Facebook users in the country is still miniscule, is this a sign of growth starting to happen?

The Facebook Global Monitor is a premium service and newsletter produced by Inside Facebook that provides vital data and insight to media industry executives, global marketing and communications firms, analysts, and developers for whom Facebook’s rapid international expansion poses significant opportunities or threats.
