Two Facebook entries in one day – that’s pretty dark in and of itself.
Nevertheless, it is for an interesting cause as it transpires that Facebook is trouncing Arab newspapers in terms of readership:
The research by Spot On Public Relations, a Dubai-based agency, says there are more than 15 million subscribers to the social network.
In Egypt alone, there are 3.5 million users, which is way beyond the circulation of any of the biggest dailies.
One third of the population in the United Arab Emirates are is to be on Facebook. [Source]
The above report is a little vague and I would be skeptical over how far Facebook could replace dailies.
Twitter – sure; but Facebook is more a social tool, rather than informative.
Still, it is a compelling clutch of stats.
