Global Facebook Statistics – Infographic

Apr. 06, 2011 | by Gregory Lyons

We’re a little data obsessed here at iCrossing, we also probably spend far too much time on Facebook so we thought we’d combine the two and take a look at some of the Facebook statistics around the world to see if everyone else is as obsessed as we are.

Perhaps unsurprisingly the home of Facebook, America has the largest number of users with just over 150 million. Perhaps more surprisingly is who places second, Indonesia with just over 35 million users.

Another interesting statistic is the percentage of the country on Facebook. Here in the UK 47% of the entire population is on Facebook, not just that but we visit Facebook a whopping 68 times a month! If we compare that to Indonesia we can see that although they have a lot of users, it represents only 15% of their population and they return to the website 7 times a month.

In the UK and USA the average age of a Facebook user is 31 years old, while in countries such as India, the Philippines and Indonesia the average age is in the early 20’s. On the whole Facebook is slightly more popular with women, in the USA 55% of users are women (52% in the UK), while in countries with more male dominated cultures such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey and India the split is more heavily skewed towards men.

      Hi Steve, thanks for the link, very cool, we were playing around with this the other day.  I think there is a 6-7 month difference regarding when the data was collected which might explain the slight difference in numbers


      Mr Ralph Sparkle, thanks!
