Here's an interesting stat, from this blog entry
Toronto has the largest Facebook network, surpassing New York and
London, UK. I would have thought that San Francisco or San Jose (some
place in Silicon Valley) would surely beat us, since they're strongly
into online social networking and Web 2.0, but apparently we're
beating them in Facebook.
So, what does this mean for Toronto, does this mean that we're leading
the pack in social networking technologies and online social
networking? Does this mean, that Toronto lacks face-to-face and
social contact compared to other cities? Or, does this mean that
Toronto forms a more cohesive and larger social network and virtual
community than others because due its multiculturalism. What are some
factors that make this Facebook statistic?
It would be interesting to conduct a study analyzing Facebook in
Toronto and compare that with physical community in Toronto, and see
if due to the social fabric in Toronto, this is how the Facebook
network comes to be.
