These are some of the common posts I see on Facebook when looking at brand pages. But while they may make you cringe, the social media platform has grown incredibly in the MENA region, with a 29% growth in the number of new user registrations. That equates to about 21 new registrations per minute, at least according to an infographic by social media analytics platform Socialbakers. The infographic lists Egypt as the largest user registration in the region with 11.9 million, followed by Saudi Arabia with 5.9 million – the UAE sits with a respectable 3.3 million users.

Check out the complete infographic below:
