Canada: Infographic: "Are Canadians the world's most extreme users of Facebook?"

From Techvibes:

In Canada, there are 15,000,000 active users (logging in once per month or more) and 9,000,000 who log in every day—this, with only 34,000,000 people in the entire country.

These Canadians spend an average of over 400 minutes, or 7 hours, per month on Facebook, and have the highest average number of friends on Earth with 190 (the global average is below 130).


Breaking down the numbers by province, Ontario has 6.4 million active users, with Quebec in third with 3.1 million and B.C. in third with 2.1 million. The Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut combined count for just over 55,000. Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia combine for roughly the same as Alberta—1.7 million.

The average user shares 90 pieces of content per month, which means Canadians share a total over nearly 1.5 billion pieces of content monthly. The average user is connected to 80 community pages, groups, and events.
