One thought on “Facebook reaches the 6 year mark

  1. The map above in the post has Australia as quite light, indicating that there may be few Australian Facebook users (I think this is because it is done by population as a whole rather than by % of users). Australia according to this blog post (http://laurelpapworth.com/australia-number-of-australians-on-facebook-2010/) by Laurel Papworth Facebook has nearly 9 million users and rising. Which is about half the nation, a phenomenally large figure. – Edgar
