Happy 2 Million Australians, Facebook

About 1/3 of Australians don’t join the Facebook Australian ‘network’ (group). But sometime in the last couple of days (since last weekend anyway), Facebook signed up their 2 millionth Australian – you can see the real numbers through the social ads pages. That makes them well on track for having 10% of Australians on Facebook by Christmas. Not bad going when you consider that Facebook was only opened up to non-education (American) email addresses late last year, and only really gained traction in Australia at the end of May this year when F8 (the application delivery service into the social network) went live.

So happy 2 million (over 18 y.o) Australians, Facebook!
