Facebook Switzerland Penetration reaches 10%

It’s official. Every 10th person living in Switzerland is now a member of the ever popular social network called Facebook. That means the number of users doubled within just 4 months!

I’ve been blogging about the growth of Facebook within Switzerland for a long time now, and noted how much faster it had grown here compared to the surrounding countries like Germany (1.1%), France(6.1%), Italy (2.7%) and Austria (2.1%).
