Facebook’s newest earnings report reveals that it now has 368 million monthly active users across Asia. Despite strong competition from full-featured messaging apps like Line and WeChat, Facebook displayed steady Asian growth in the figures for Q4 2013. It’s up from 298 million monthly active users (MAUs) at the end of 2012.
