Key stats you need to know about today

November 2, 2017
Facebook's Steady Growth: In its Q3 earnings, Facebook reported it had 1.37 billion daily active users (DAUs) on average in September 2017—a 16% increase year over year. And as of September 30, the social giant reported 2.07 billion monthly active users (MAUs), up 16% year over year. Mobile was also a key driver. In fact, mobile advertising revenues represented roughly 88% of Facebook's overall ad earnings for Q3, roughly 4 percentage points higher than the previous year.

US Wages Grow: Job site Glassdoor reports that US wages are growing. The company found a 1.6% year-over-year increase in the country's median base pay in October 2017, when it hit $51,220. Glassdoor said wage growth has been slow but steady, according to its figures, noting that pay growth had increased in January by 3.5%.

Connectivity Issues: It's easy to take internet access for granted. But it turns out more than 80% of US businesses have experienced some kind of internet connectivity issue with regularity, according to Radius Global Market Research and WiredScore. On average, respondents to the poll said they experienced more than four internet disruptions per month. And more than three-quarters said the outages had hit their bottom line.

TVs Take a Hit: WitsView, a division of TrendForce, recently reported that worldwide shipments of branded TVs had dropped by 4.0% year over year in Q3 2017 to total 54.99 million units. However, that was an increase of 16% from the second quarter. The company found that decreases in panel prices had aided TV brands, but annual shipment numbers were expected to continue to decline in the mature product category.

Smart Clothing Adoption: Clothing will increasingly have sensors and computers embedded in them, according to new data from ABI Research. The firm predicts smart clothing shipments will exceed 31 million units by 2022, up from about 5 million units this year. ABI Research expects consumers will spur most of the adoption, while uptake driven by issues like worker safety will follow.
