Not to drive my point into the ground...but that's not exactly what I said.
Facebook is demonstrably big in Toronto. (Assuming that there aren't

observed that the social networking tools that you use is at least
partially demographically driven (e.g., I think that MySpace tends to
get more of the younger crowd just now).
