Social Networking
We just can’t get enough!

A recently published report by European communications watchdog stated that more British adults use social networking sites, such as Facebook and MySpace, than in any other European country. 

According to the report more than 39% of Britons used the sites during 2006 compared to 22% of people in Italy, 17% in France and 12% in Germany.

Figures however were much higher in non-European countries. 53 Percent of Canadians used social sites, 34% of people in the United States and 32% in Japan.

The study compared British trends in television, radio and telecommunications with those in 11 other countries.

The report also found that only British and US men spent less time on the internet than women. In Britain, the figure was 50:50 while in the United States only 48% of users were men.
