According to several news articles this week, London has seemingly taken the top spot from Toronto as the biggest Facebook "network" in the world. The London network now boasts appro 850,000 members, and is growing at a rate of 6% a week – double the average of the rest of the site. But what are the other UK cities on Facebook up to? To find out, we did some digging around and have compiled for you the first UK Top 10 Facebook Networks list…

1. London — (849,348 members)

3. West Midlands — (155,471 members)
4. Leeds — (93,091 members)
