USA Facebook usage statistics by state - July 2009

Earlier this week I looked at Facebook usage statistics by country and found that the USA is still the biggest country by Facebook usage - increasing by over 40 million active users in the last 12 months.

Update / New - Facebook USA usage statistics by state July 2010 vs July 2009

Last July I posted figures for Facebook users by US state, so I thought it would be interesting to update these figures and see if there are any interesting changes.

Nevada has had the highest percentage increase in Facebook users, whilst California (unsurprisingly) remains the state with the highest Facebook usage. (Indeed, if California was a country it would be the country with the 7th largest Facebook user base.)

Thanks for this info! I used it for my Stat's class. Interesting!

Anonymous said...

Definitely interesting info. Helped tremendously. What would be even better to have is if the Facebook users by state could then be broken down into age and sex for that state only. For rural states like MS that are last in the nation for computer and internet access, it's hard to translate the Facebook explosion into real data and life that applies to a specific area.

@anon

i completely agree, though this is really cool, some more stats would blow me socks off.

How do you come about these numbers?

Toddmcc said...

I'd like to get these numbers for the current year. Do you know if there is a service that provides these to marketers? In my work that number could be a very powerful motivator for my clients.

Thanks,

Hi Nick! I was wondering if good get more information about where you got the data for the fb stats? I'm currently writing a textbook and would love to use the data for exercises, but need to get permission to print it. The data is so relevant for students! Do you have the authority to grant permission for us to republish the Facebook data found in your blog?

Many thanks!
