Merry Christmas everyone! I see “merry Christmas” is trending both in Singapore and worldwide on Twitter. Twitter and Facebook must be deluged with Christmas greetings since almost every internet user in the world today visits social networking sites, according to the internet marketing research company, ComScore.
In Singapore, 94 per cent of the internet users are social networking, as you can see in this chart showing social network usage around the world. It is taken from a ComScore report released a few days ago. Facebook has more users in Singapore than The Straits Times has readers, as we will see later in this post. The figures in the chart show the percentage of internet users using social networks in October. Ninety-eight per cent of the internet users in America and Britain use social networks, 96 per cent in Australia and 95 per cent in India.
