About 80 % of all Likes and Shares on Facebook are reportedly a result of users located outside the US, a new data has revealed.

The data has pointed that Facebook has seen a 5 % increase in clicks on Like and Share buttons since resigning the buttons last month.

According to Mashable, the redesigned Like and Share buttons appear on more than 7.5 million third-party websites, and are viewed by Internet users more than 22 billion times per day.

As 83 % of Facebook's monthly active users are outside of the US and Canada, it is logical to find the said per cent of Likes and Shares coming from international users.

The report said that the biggest amount of Facebook’s Like and Share buttons arrive from Asia-Pacific and Western Europe, followed by US that accounted for 20 %, while the lowest appeal is in the Middle East with just 2 % engagement.
