The Phillipines is a TOP Social Media Country? True or false?

I am in the Phillipines this week at the Social Business Asian Tour! And TRUE the Phillipines is a TOP Social Media Country!   They have not applied all the work to Business yet…but wow — their personal use is truly amazing!

According to comScore Media Metrix, January – April 2011, the Phillipines is the #1 country of Facebook penetration with 93% participation from online users!  And they have the highest % of time on Social Networking worldwide.  And they are #9 in the world on their usage of Twitter!

 At present, the Philippines continues to hold the top spot for Facebook penetration and also ranks highest in share of time spent on social networking properties across the world, making it the most social media-addicted market globally. Of the total time spent online in April 2011 by the Philippines’ online audience, 41.3 percent was spent on social networking sites.

I am here this week with the MAP group speaking with the CEO of MySpace about Social!    Did you know that the FIRST IBM product here was a Clock and the retired IBMer who made it still maintains it for free?!

Check out our GREAT team here in the Philipines!


  1. hello Sandy:-) I was there during your townhall at Richmonde Hotel Eastwood. As a social media fan and participant, and heavy user at that, I was truly inspired by you. Ultimately, I became a more proud IBmer. 🙂 following your blog now:D
