Saudi Arabia Leads The Middle East in The Use of Facebook

Saudi Arabia leads the Middle East in the number of Facebook users. Base on statistics and surveys, Saudi Arabia has more than 4.5 million active users in Facebook until the end of December 2011.

The number of internet users in Saudi Arabia is about 11.5 million clients until the end of 2011 rose by 43.6% of the population. However Iran has more than 36 million internet users but Facebook is officially blocked in Iran. That’s why Iranians cannot compete in the number of Facebook users.
