Facebook vs The United States

Info-graphics have definitely been the trend this year, and I have yet another one to share with you. Muhammad Saleem broke down Facebook’s user base and compared it to the population of the US. Demographic information is important when deciding how you are going to market to Facebook users. I have been focusing my marketing efforts toward Facebook as opposed to spending all day watching Twitter or dumping money into Google Adwords. My Facebook fan page has been a great source of referrals for my wedding photography business.

Facebook’s official company statistics outline the breakdown of the sites over 400 million active users. While the site points out about 70% of Facebook users are outside the United States, it doesn’t dive deeper into the U.S. numbers. Muhammad dug deeper and designed this nice info-graphic outlining details about the users of Facebook in the US.

Also check out another Facebook demographic post I shared a few weeks ago here.

    How about in another 10 years the US Government creates a Census Facebook App? Unfortunately, the US Government is still probably the largest user of the US Postal Service. A free app could lower the cost of the census considerably! All connected households could enter their data on their Facebook page and prevent needing to answer mail or worse have someone go door-to-door.
