Canadian Facebook Growth by the Numbers

Scott Brooks tracks the remarkable growth of Facebook in Canada over the past year.


  1. A little skewed
    Those are the city networks (e.g. Toronto, Halifax, etc.) but I suspect more people are in the university networks (UBC, Concordia, U of Ottawa, etc.) and that these didn’t have nearly that much growth (as most students were already members).

    I also wonder how much of the growth in the city networks is people who graduated from the universities (and are therefore not new facebook members)

  2. Maybe not
    You’re allowed to join a city network regardless of how what university or work networks you belong to. I’m in university right now, and most people I know belong to the school network in addition to the network of their hometown.
