  • 1,667,480 Irish people are on Facebook
  • 33% of Irish Facebookers are aged 25-34

  • There are more Irish women than guys on the social network – 880,620 vs. 742,680
  • Four of the top ten Irish brands on Facebook are alcoholic drinks…surprising that Guinness doesn’t top the list given all the Arthurs Day hoo-ha.

Sunday Tribune to go Tabloid

In a cost-cutting measure, from September onwards the Sunday Tribune will hit the newstands in a tabloid format.

No longer will there be seperate sections for business, news and sport. These will be ditched for a ‘compact’ 104 pages and a glossy magazine targeting women readers.

The move comes after a steady decline in the Tribune’s circulation. ABC figures released this week shine a spotlight on the Tribune’s problem with average sales down from 65,700 in the first half of 2009 to 54,500 copies in the same period this year.
