Facebook counted 600 million active users

According to ITU’s report “Trends in Telecommunication Reform 2010–2011”, social networks are growing and attracting many users. At the end of 2010, Facebook alone counted 600 million active users, representing more than one third of Internet users worldwide. The map below underlines the low-penetration level of social network users in Africa, in line with low Internet user penetration in that region. Forty per cent of active Facebook users access the platform through their mobile devices. Micro-blogging site Twitter now has over 200 million registered users, and 37 per cent of active Twitter users use their mobile device to tweet. Data also show that two billion videos are watched every day on YouTube, while five billion photos are now hosted on Flickr. Participation in social media networks, blog sites and user-generated content (such as YouTube, Flickr and Wikipedia) reflects the capacity of users and consumers to take the opportunities these applications and services offer for their professional and personal lives. These applications and services reduce time and distance barriers, and usher users into the global digital village, with ubiquitous access and always-on connectivity.The digital generation are likely to use their smart phones, gaming consoles and tablets, rather than desktop computers, to access the Internet, social networks and online user-generated video. This will put additional pressure on mobile operators to offer high-speed anytime anywhere services.
