Facebook USA usage statistics by state - July 2010 vs July 2009 vs July 2008

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 56 million active users in the last 12 months.

Using figures from the Facebook platform (which provides 'Estimated Reach' by country / state) I have evaluated growth in Facebook usage by state over the last 2 years.

- the largest US state for Facebook use is California with Facebook reporting 15.3 million users
- the fastest growing US state for Facebook usage in the last 12 months is District Of Colombia
- the fastest growing US state for Facebook use in the last 24 months is Nevada

Difficult to do and I don't think I know the answer to this one unfortunately.

Thanks for posting this data. I divided each number by the state's population and created a state intensity map here:

I'm curious...how did you get the data?

Thanks for such a thorough compilation of data, Nick. Do you have any information about Facebook users broken down by age? I'm in need of data that looks beyond just age and number of users; I am curious about the adoption rate and usage tendencies and frequency among each age range. Do you have anything like that?

Thanks,
Christy

Thanks, Buzz.

Hi Nick,

Do you know how many photos were uploaded on Facebook in the US in 2010? or any other photo sites for the US?

do you think you could show per capita usage as well?
