FB Country: Top Facebook Users in the World

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%.

    How timely — I just canceled my Friendster account and recreated a parking account, in favor of Facebook!

  2. It was way back years since friendster.com have this spot. Now facebook merges to become top! I mean they are on TOP!

    I guess people in PH are still holding on to their friendster account.

    The question now is how long can FB hold on to the TOP Spot or another social network sites will steal the lime light like what FB did with Myspace and myspace with friendster?

    Facebook is too strong right now… With the integration of external applications, unless something very innovative comes along there is no putting out facebook from the top.

    Facebook is too strong. Im a little bit excited for GOOGLE ME.

  6. drealmarlon says:

    Gameblogger is right,Facebook is bigger and bigger because of thier innovated way like the Apple Machintos Corp. which now also on top.

    yeah, Facebook is VERY strong here in this country. Just ask my sister; she can sit on a computer for hours (read: 6 hours or more) doing nothing but checking on Facebook. :/ I’m excited with Google Me.. they said it will be launched later this year. What’s interesting to note is that Google secretly invested $100+ Million in Zynga, http://techcrunch.com/2010/07/10/google-secretly-invested-100-million-in-zynga-preparing-to-launch-google-games/
    What if Google-Zynga decided to ‘move’ and be used exclusively to Google Me? Will it have a great impact to Facebook? I think so.

    kahit na 16% lang ng population natin ang gumagamit ng fb ay nasa top 10 naman tayo sa may pinaka maraming users worldwide… facebook hype because of the games.. well lets see kung hanggang saan ang facebook(no permanent in this world). kahit na may plan ang google to make a social networking site, expect ko na mag flop yun kagaya ng google buzz na ginawa nila………………

  11. loadex says:

    versus canada, mas madami pa user ang Pinas, kase ang PC penetration sa Pinas baka yun din 15% user na yun, samantalang sa Canada, I assume almost all household have PC, parang TV na din… but they only have 15M user against 34M population.

    i doubt Google could topple FB, i havent focused much on goggle buzz but seems they are rehashing and goes google me? Privacy issues would be an issue for this 2 giants.

    mr. bogus,
    why makes you think that Google Me would fail? Are you basing your judgement from Google Buzz?? Ang kaibahan ngayon, Google owns a significant part/portion of Zynga.. most FB users are here only because of the games they play,, and if Google-Zynga decided to go all-out exclusively for Google Me, do you think most of those FB users still have reasons to stay? I think not..
