Facebook usage statistics - March 2010 (with 12 month increase figures)

I have been publishing Facebook usage statistics by quarter for a while now. Total number of Facebook users has now passed 400m and it still seems to be growing almost everywhere. The table below shows the top 30 countries by number of active Facebook users (leave a comment if you want to know statistics for other countries.)

Here are the Top 30 countries with highest number of Facebook users (31st March 2010 - data from Facebook):

RankCountryNumber of Facebook users March 2009Number of Facebook users 31st March 201012 month growth %
24Hong Kong1,686,0202,865,70070%
28South Africa1,385,3402,485,96079.5%
29Czech Rep444,1202,421,720446%

[*figures are taken from Facebook and then compared to Facebook usage statistics lists that I have previously compiled (allowing the 12 month comparisons.)]

As always, if you want to know the latest Facebook usage statistics for another country, leave a comment in the post below and I will post the relevant Facebook user statistics data.

Hi you were quite silent about Nigeria. I know 2008 figures showed Nigeria was number one on the net in Africa but number 5 on Facebook. I'm itching to see the latest face book figures cause there has been an upsurge in internet penetration per citizen.
