Canada Tops Facebook Usage Across The World

Inspired by a meeting with Alfredo Tan, Facebook's director for Canada, firm 6S Marketing crafted an infographic showing off the "mind blowing" statistics of Canadian Facebook  users.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).

Even during the recent royal wedding, the U.K. saw less than 7 million people log in per day, less than Canada's average even without a major event occurring. And based on percentages of the population, Canada crushed U.S. with a penetration near 50 percent, while America is below 40 percent.

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.
