More than 150,000 Icelanders are logging in to the popular social networking website Facebook, according to the market research company Buzzpoint.
With exactly 46.89 percent of Icelanders owning a Facebook account, the country now holds claim to a new world record in Facebook activity. Norway ranks not far behind in second place with exactly 40 percent of the population registered on Facebook.
According to similar research, Facebook has over 250 million users worldwide despite being blocked intermittently in several countries including Syria and China. Only three countries in the world have a larger population than the total amount of registered Facebook users: China, India and the USA.
The USA does however claim the highest number of registered Facebook users, with 70 million citizens logging in on a daily basis. However, due to Iceland´s per capita ratio the country still holds the world record.
