Facebook’s Footprint in Spain Up 600% in 2008


Inside Facebook wrote recently that Facebook’s growth in Spain had risen to 132% during the first half of this year, going from 332k users in February 2008 to 774k in August 2008.

Well, the December numbers are in and Facebook penetration has reached 2.3 million users in Spain, showing a 595% increase this year.  With a population of approximately 40 million people, Facebook penetration in Spain has reached 5.7%.

While these numbers aren’t necessarily the most impressive of those throughout Europe, Facebook is still growing at a blistering pace in Spain.  We expect that trend to continue in 2009.
