Facebook usage statistics by country - Sep 10 vs Sep 09 vs Sep 08

New - Facebook usage statistics 31st Dec 2011 here

The latest Facebook usage statistics by country show some interesting changes, particularly the growth in Asia with extraordinary increases recorded in places like Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Malaysia. There has also been strong growth in Eastern Europe and both India and Germany have grown from less than 1 million users to well over 10 million Facebook users across the 2 year time scale.

The table below shows the top 30 countries by number of active Facebook users with September 2010 Facebook user information compared to September 2009 and September 2008 Facebook usage statistics (leave a comment if you want to know statistics for other countries.)

Here are the Top 30 countries with highest number of Facebook users (30th Sep 2010 - data from Facebook):

[*figures are taken from Facebook and then compared to Facebook usage statistics lists that I have previously compiled (allowing the 12 month and 24 month comparisons.)]

As always, if you want to know the latest Facebook usage statistics for another country (and data is now published for almost every country in the world), leave a comment in the post below and I will post the relevant Facebook user statistics data.

Hi, is it possible to compare country stats by population penetration? e.g. Malta with c. 164K users has approx. 40% penetration for Facebook - how does that compare to other countries?

Hi Nick

Just saw your summary on the latest traffic stats by country. I'm surprised to see South Africa there as they don't have high Internet penetration. But the few people that does have Internet access really use it morning noon and night!

Thanks for the insight.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
