Here is a list of countries listed from highest Facebook penetration to lowest. This list was put together by this great facebook stats website based on January 2011 data compared to the month of December 2010.

Interesting to note:

  • The Falkland Islands has the highest Internet Penetration, even though its total number of Facebook users has dropped by close to 30%! What happened? My guess, a british battalion had to go home..
  • China has (unsurprisingly) one of the lowest penetration rates, however Hong Kong and Taiwan have some of the highests, imagine what market/revenues Facebook is missing out on. No doubt they must be busy trying to convince the Chinese authorities to relax their ban. And maybe it’s actually happening as China had the highest growth in number of users both from a total number and percentage perspective in the past month.
  • The other country experiencing a huge user growth is the Democratic Republic of Congo, which might be a sign that African countries Social Media adoption is going to experience a huge growth in 2011.
