Crazy for Facebook

There's a fun dialog going on between Jeff Pulver, Moshe Maeir, and Shel Israel over Facebook adoption in Israel.  It's sprinting towards 100K users.  As Jeff notes, that's a little more than 1% of the total population.  Since October 14th, when Jeff spoke at VON Israel, it's grown from 70,000 to 97,000, which is remarkable since Israel is first and foremost a Hebrew speaking nation, not English.

Just for fun, I checked some other statistics from English speaking countries.

  • The USA has 19,951,900 Facebook users, out of a total population of 301,139,947. 6.6% of Americans are Facebook users.   
  • The UK has 6,407,580 Facebook users, out of a total population of 60,776,238. 10.5% of UK residents are Facebook users.
  • Australia has 1,498,320 Facebook users, out of a total population of 20,434,176. 7.3% of Australians are Facebook users. 
  • Canada has 7,361,720 Facebook users, out of a total population of 33,390,141. 22% of Canadians are Facebook users. 

Canadians are daffy for Facebook.
