The Facebook audience in Singapore primarily comprises females accounting for 53.88% of the total audience base, and male users stand at 46.14%.  Millennials (26-39) are the most active user base, winning over 48.02% of space; the platform can be ideal for brands whose target audiences are Millennials. On the other hand, Gen Z (18-25) occupy 30.34%, showing that they are less concerned about Facebook compared to millennials. 

2. Number of influencers by Followers Count 


Micro-influencers with 10k-50k followers comprise a large segment of the content creators on Facebook in Singapore. At least 978 people account for nano-influencers. However,  Facebook can still see the growth in micro and nano influencers as they are rising. The mid-tier and macro influencers come next with 363 and 282, respectively. As the number of followers increases, the number of influencers decreases.
