The All Blacks page has 1,921,874 fans. The New Zealand 100% pure page is the closest contender, with 666,574 fans.

Meanwhile, New Zealanders interest in the site does not appear to be faltering, with 113,980 new logins created in the past six months, according to data compiled by socialbakers.com.

However, while the general popularity is still on the up, users aged between 18 to 24 appear to be leaving the site, with about 2500 logging off in the past month.

The 18 to 24 age group still makes up the largest demographic though, with 537,460 users.

At the other end of the age spectrum, those aged over 65 are growing more used to social media, with about 2500 creating new logins in the past month.

The number of New Zealanders with Facebook equates to 53.82 per cent of the population, or 63.12 per cent of the online population.

New Zealand's use of the site sits slightly below the United States, where it's used by about 53.97 per cent of its population.
