I'm learning more about my topic of youth people's entertainment over education, right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: Why are we as the future generation not taking great interests in Math and Science? As I was reading in my Google Reader, this blog post caught my eye because it has had a graph bar about the socializing rate increasing and when that happens time for education decreases. The title was Facebook is Growing Fast in Asia, Europe, and etc. I saw multiple graphs about increases and comparison with social networks.
"With Facebook recently passing 175 million users, I decided to update my analysis of its user base. The weekly growth in number of users has remained steady, with the last 5 weeks being exceptionally strong: Facebook added over 25 million users since early February. The share of U.S. users inched up slightly from 30% to 31%.
The company added users in all regions but compared to my analysis in early December, growth accelerated inAsia and North America. Note that the number of users in Asia remains small compared to other social networks in the region. The number of users from Canada still exceeds the total in all of Asia (still under 10 million). Within Asia, the fastest-growing countries over the last 12 weeks were Indonesia (up 169%) and the Philippines (up 119%). (For reasons as to how Facebook has expanded in specific countries, I encourage Radar readers to share their thoughts in the comments.)
Europe and South America both experienced double-digit growth rates over the last 12 weeks, but compared to last December, Facebook grew much slower in both regions. A third of all users (33%) now come from Europe. Among the smaller countries in Europe, Facebook grew fastest in the Czech Republic (up 144%) and Slovakia (up 137%). Among the larger European countries, growth was fastest in Italy (up 71%), Spain (up 66%), and Germany (up 48%)."
