Facebook Hits 5 Million Active Users In Japan [Social Networks]

Social network analytics tool Socialbakers still says Facebook has 4.6 million users in Japan for some reason, but Facebook Japan itself now claims it has 5 million active users in this country (active=all users who logged in at least once in the last 30 days). TechCrunch Japan reported the newest number earlier today.

Facebook’s Japan country growth Taro Kodama has personally confirmed the new milestone on tech news site CNET Japan.

This is obviously a pretty big step and symbolic win for Facebook in Japan even though its closest rival Mixi still seems to be far ahead, boasting 15 million active users.
