Facebook Country Statistics

Dear Reader,
Mark Zuckerberg, without being a political leader and without planning to do so, has sparked the only true revolution taking place today in the world: the – Social Web Revolution –. The main characteristic of a revolution is a drastic and far-reaching change in ways of thinking and behaving. This is precisely what has happened worldwide in the Internet due to his now famous Facebook network. More than 517 million persons in 212 different countries have joined the Facebook Social Web, in the surprisingly short period of time of six years.

New Facebook statistics for each country, territory and region have been included at Internet World Stats, using data as of August 31, 2010. When you click on each geographic region, a new web page opens and under each country name data box you can see the Facebook users and penetration data by country. The source for all these numbers is the Facebook Network itself.

So, without further ado, please read on and enjoy this new IWS Newsletter issue, featuring the complete Facebook Users statistics by country and region.
