According to the BBC, 39% UK adults use social networking sites. This compares with 53% in Canada, 34% in the USA, 32% in Japan, 22% in Italy, 17% in France and 12% in Germany.
These stats are courtesy of an Ofcom report.
The report also showed that the USA is the only country where more there are more female Internet users than male ones (52% of US Internet users are women). The only country where there are an equal number of male and female Internet users is the UK. Everywhere else, men use the Internet more.
And while I’m on the subject of that report, the UK enjoys some of the cheapest deals for mobiles, broadband and television. Which is odd, because I was under the impression that everything costs more over here than elsewhere.
