Indian User Statistics on Facebook

Social Media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Youtube are growing their userbase exponentially in India. According to Alootechie, the number of Facebook users in India was at 8M in March 2010. In a little over six months, the number of Indian users have doubled and now stand at 15.5 million. With the proliferation of cheaper smart phones and start of 3G services in India, the rate of growth of internet population and thereby, adoption of Social Media sites should receive a significant boost.

    Nice statistics. A lot of people are on facebook. :)

    I always wondered that how you get these statistics from facebook.com. I mean I have tried to search about it. Didn’t find anything. A lot of companies claim their data sources like you are.

    Can you tell us how did you find the statistics yourself. It would be kind enough :)

    cheers!
