South Africa is the only country on the list with more females than males and with the highest spending on Facebook. Nigeria on the other hand has two times more male users than female users. In terms of spending, Nigeria comes second after South Africa.

Currently, only 6 African countries have more than a million users on Facebook; Egypt, South Africa, Morocco, Nigeria, Tunisia and Algeria. Kenya is approaching a million but needs about 135,240 more users to reach a million. The internet space in Kenya is waxing strong; we predict that it should be able to cross the line before the end of the year.
