Estonia Latvia Lithuania
Facebook usage in the Baltic states has grown since
August with an obvious peak in October, most likely due
to the release of the movie ‘The Social Network’. The
number of users in Estonia has grown 24% in that period.
In Latvia 41% and in Lithuania 13%.
Distribution By Country Baltic States
As in previous months, growth of usage has been biggest
in Latvia, resulting in a slightly increasing share of the
total Baltic user base. But the growth in Estonia also
resulted in a slightly bigger piece of the pie.
Distribution By Gender Baltic States
No significant changes in the distribution by gender,
although the men seem to have taken a slightly bigger
part. Also interesting to note that not only relatively, but
also absolutely, the number of Facebook users not
indicating their gender has decreased.
