Facebook appears to be making some real progress in Asia. Back in February, we reported that there were 143 million Facebook users in the region. But now after five months, the figure has ballooned to 166 million, a 13.8 percent jump*.

As Facebook approaches the one billion mark, Asia's growth will play a huge role in helping the platform reach that figure. With that in mind we thought it would be fun to break down the Asia user base into it's respective countries. You can see the results in the infographic below.
