5 Most Facebook Addicted Countries In The World
In Egypt every user makes an average of 380 Facebook posts per month which accounts to over 12 posts per day, per page. What is astonishing is that Egypt has a literacy rate of 72% and only one quarter of that has access to the internet which means that approximately 11.7 million Egyptians are on Facebook which is less than the U.S. user base.
Facebook has played an integral role in the country’s political affairs. During the uprising of which led to the ousting of longtime President Hosni Mubarak in 2011, Wael Ghonim made a facebook page dedicated to Khaled Mohamed Said, who was brutally killed. Kahled Mohamed’s picture went viral on the social network after which Ghonim went ahead and spread awareness by making a Facebook page by the name “Kullena Khaled Said” — “We Are All Khaled Said.” The Facebook page went on to gather over 250,000 followers in three months.
An Egyptian man last year apparently named his newborn baby girl “Facebook,” with that Egypt is the world’s most Facebook addicted country.
