Facebook is now starting to hit physical limits to its digital growth. Facebook’s average revenue per user in the “rest of the world”, where most user growth is coming from, is 10 times lower than the average revenue per user in North America ($0.80 vs. $8.32 per user respectively). To grow its business Facebook needs to look into business models beyond advertising and app installs, especially in emerging economies.
