Adoption of Facebook in the Philippines has grown exponentially over the last 12 months. The Yahoo!-Nielsen Net Index for 2010, Facebook users grew from 4% in 2009 to 83% this year.
Facebook announced last week that it has reached 500 Million users. But it’s not only in the Philippines that Facebook is getting huge adoption rates.
The Guardian UK has posted a list of countries and the percentage of penetration for each.
Hong Kong took the top spot at 49% of the population, followed by Canada and the United Kingdom. Interesting to note that Chile is at 41% and Turkey at 31%. The Philippines is a bit way down there at 16%.
