Here are some interesting statistics from Facebakers.com that caught my eye this morning…

  • In terms of highest penetration (usage per head of population) Vatican City leads the way with 96.5% penetration
  • More female Facebook users in Vatican City than male (nuns?!)
  • 1,667,480 Irish people are on Facebook
  • 33% of Irish Facebookers are aged 25-34
  • 17% are aged 35-44
  • 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.
