Just a quicky tea-break post…
I encountered this post (on the O’Reilly Radar blog) through a secondary source…
If I’m reading one of the charts correctly, the U.S. has about 28 million Facebook accounts…and Canada has about 11 million (that’s eyeballing: both numbers could be off quite a bit).
Current estimates for Canada’s population: a little over 33 million.
Current estimates for the U.S. population: a little over 301 million.
So one out of three Canadians is on Facebook–as opposed to something under one out of ten U.S. residents?
(Hey, by any reasonable standard, one-third of everybody in a country, including infants, being on a social network is close enough to “everyone” for everyday use.)
(I’m still thinking about whether to set up an account…slowly, very slowly.)
