Well, the number of Australians on Facebook has shot through the roof. After sitting on 6 million for a while, we have 7,900,000 monthly active users, 6,900,000 over 18 years old. That’s quite a jump. Or maybe it’s been longer than I thought since I last checked. If you hunt through this blog, you’ll notice that I’ve been tracking Facebook users in Australia since May 2007 (around 200,000 members I think) to today and 1/3 of Australian population.
It just keeps increasing. Here’s the description of a Monthly Active User according to Facebook, as well as the August figures for Australians on Facebook. If you want to track the Australians on Facebook yourself, pretend to create an ad, fill in the fields and you’ll see similar to above screen.
