Facebook ’round the world

Over at O’Reilly Radar, Ben Lorica has an updated analysis of Facebook’s global growth. Among the findings:

  • Europe is now home to a third of all Facebook users, with the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Italy, Spain, and Germany driving growth
  • Facebook remains a smaller social networking platform in Asia, but has seen rapid recent growth in Indonesia and the Philippines
  • Turkey is a surprising leader – home to 69% of all Facebook users in the Middle East and North Africa, and behind only the U.S., UK, and Canada in total number of Facebook users

Out of curiosity, I went back to the page for the “Alliance of Youth Movements,” a group affiliated with the State Department’s public diplomacy efforts, to find out whether the worldwide “March Against Al Qaeda” had a date listed yet. Still “March, 2009 – exact date to be determined.” Not keeping my breath held.
