Top Facebook Users per Population: Philippines

Texting capital of the world: Philippines. Now, . .

Social Networking capital of the world: also the Philippines.

The Philippines is such a laid back country, and we have all the time in the world to procreated and send text messages or surf in Facebook.  I hope next time we will be known as the top GDP producer in the world.

Facebook has 600 million members worldwide and continues to grow.  According to data provided by web analytics firm comScore, Facebook’s market share in some countries is extremely high, although the numbers of Internet users compared with the overall population is very small. Eighty-seven percent of online visitors in Peru use Facebook, but only 27% of the people there have Internet access.

although The Philippines has the highest proportion of users per population, Indonesia’s capital Jakarta has the largest Facebook population of any city in the world (17.5 million users).  Jakarta has the most users of any city in the world, but the Philippines has the highest penetration of Facebook users, ie users per the population

24/7 Wall St. looked at the ten countries in which Facebook has tremendous dominance of the online market. Most are concentrated in Latin America or Southeast Asian countries, including the Philippines and Indonesia. There is no obvious explanation for this except that some of these markets are among the first where Facebook introduced its service.

Facebook’s overall presence in the US is smaller than it is in the nations on our list. Inside Facebook reported late last year that “The overall penetration level of the US has continued to creep up through monthly volatility” and now stands at 43.8 percent.  Facebook’s growth in America may continue rapidly, if the ten countries on this list are an indication of its potential

For the sake of comparison, 24/7 Wall St. has also included the penetration of LinkedIn and Twitter in the countries listed on “Ten Nations Where Facebook Rules The Internet.” Twitter has 5% to 15% online penetration is most of the nations, although it moves toward 20% in some. LinkedIn’s presence in most is very small.

24/7 used data from comScore, Inside Facebook, New Media Trend Watch, and ZDNet to do its analysis.

These are the  Ten Nations Where Facebook Rules The Internet

The Philippines tops the list with 93.9 percent of the nation reportedly signed up to Facebook, the full list is below with the summary from each Southeast Asian market following.

  1. Philippines 93.9%

  4. Chile 90.2%
  5. Argentina 89.2%

  7. Indonesia 87.5%
  8. Peru 87.2%
  9. Colombia 86.9%

What is interesting is just how high Twitter usage amongst the three Southeast Asia countries while LinkedIn remains particularly low.

1. Philippines
> Facebook: 93.9%
> Twitter: 16.1%
> LinkedIn: 1.9%
> Internet Use: 29.7%

Social network penetration is incredibly high in the Philippines, reaching 95%.  Facebook is the country’s most popular website, more so than Google, and has a penetration rate of 93.9%.  The Philippines is also the eighth most popular country for Twitter use on a global scale, with a penetration rate of 16.1%.  The popularity of photo sharing has increased by 46% in the country in one year, largely due to Facebook.  Social networking is so popular among Filipinos, the country has been nicknamed “The Social Networking Capital of the World.”

6. Malaysia
> Facebook: 88.4%
> Twitter: 10.8%
> LinkedIn: 2.9%

Malaysia has the second-highest social network penetration in Southeast Asia, with 91%. One of the most increasingly popular social-networking activities in the country is photo-sharing on sites such as Facebook. From 2009 to 2010, the popularity of online photo-sharing increased by 57% in Malaysia. This is the second greatest percentage among Southeast Asian countries.

7. Indonesia
> Facebook: 87.5%

> Internet Use: 12.3%

Social network penetration in Indonesia is the third greatest in Southeast Asia as of the beginning of 2011, at 90% of those people online. According to comScore, the country’s high adoption rates are due “almost exclusively” to Facebook. In January 2011, 22% of Indonesian Internet users visited Twitter, the fourth-greatest share among all countries. Indonesia, however, has the smallest percentage of Internet users among the countries on this list — 12.3%.
