India: Facebook English Speaking Demographics

Welcome back to part six of our Facebook English Speaking Demographic series! After dissecting stats of the 60 countries with the largest FB userbase (that also claim English as an official language) in Population Graph: Where Are Facebook English Speaking Users?, we explored the trends and identities of English speaking Facebookers in the UK, Ireland and Canada. We rolled out those demographic research segments all in one week…. we’re going to slow things down a bit now and journey to one country per week. Think of it as an international humpday hike treat. Read on, jet-setters…

Today we’re hopping back across the pond, leaping straight over Europe, and heading for a smooth landing in India. As of June 2, 2010, 9,506,540 of India’s English speaking residents were members of the social networking behemoth known as Facebook.  What do you say we take a look-see at the obvious and not so obvious ways self-identify…

English is the focus of this Facebook demographic study, but it’s always useful to place that against the backdrop of other languages as a useful basis of comparison.

Watch out ladies… you’re not the only ones who like the glam & glitz of Carrie Bradshaw…

Strength In Numbers: Bullies Beware
A seemingly minut portion of English Speaking Facebookers in India actually like bullying…

But that sect pales in comparison to the folks who “say no” to violence.

    Really pleased to see this series return. I was thrown into a deep, dark, despairing doldrum at its seemingly-swift suspension.

    @Justin Hornung: I know I speak for Lauren when I say that, on behalf of the entire aimClear team, we’re glad you did not lapse into a downward spiral of depression as a result of our cruel tease. :)

    @You_Both: Darnit, Marty beat me. And truly, I couldn’t have said it better myself. Welp… this is awkward… can I RT a blog comment? Is that socially acceptable yet? :) Thanks for your enthusiasm about the series, Justin. I look forward to catching you in the Philippines next week.

    @Marty: Your well-wishes are like sprinkles on the ice cream of my brain. :)

    @Lauren: Were it up to me, I’d say go for it. In fact, who’s to say it’s not up to me, which is to say, you? Break that barrier DOWN, sister, and lay waste to those who would stand in your way! Overcome, overwhelm, and overthrow!

    …this comment ended up in a much different place than it started.

    @Justin: I feel the sudden urge to dab warpaint beneath my eyes… in fact, I want to slather 2/3 of my face with warpaint… blue warpaint… strange.

    Isn’t this a small percentage of facebook users compared to the population of the country itself? There are a number of Asian countries that would score a much higher percentage… not necessarily a good thing.
