Graphic News

January 1, 1970 -- Facebook reported $6.88 billion in net profits in the final three months of 2018 -- a jump of 61% from the same period a year earlier -- while revenue for the quarter rose 30% to $16.91 billion.

Despite ongoing controversies, the Menlo Park, California-based company reported $55.83 billion in 2018, up from $40.65 billion in the previous year, and net profits of $22.11 billion.

Monthly active users in the U.S. and Canada remained flat at 242 million compared with the third quarter while its European monthly users grew to 381 million from 370 million in fourth quarter 2017.

Users in the U.S. and Canada are Facebook’s most lucrative, worth an average of $34.86 each. Users in Europe generated an average of $10.98 each while global average revenue per user grew to $7.37.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
