Bangkok is top town for Facebookers in the world, as Asia fuels growth

According to Facebook's ad targeting model, there are 6,407,180 Facebook users within a 50 mile radius of Bangkok who are 18 and older.

BANGKOK: -- Bangkok has surpassed Jakarta as the city with the most Facebook users in the world, according to reputable Facebook statistic website Socialbakers.

Currently the Thai capital is home to 8,682,940 users of the social network, surpassing the Indonesian capital’s 7,434,580 Facebookers.

Asian cities rank highly throughout the list – Mumbai is ninth (3,700,460), Kuala Lumpur is 14th (3,328,240), Bangalore is 16th (2,931,460), and Singapore is 17th (2,662,680).

Developing Asian countries like Thailand and Indonesia have provided the most explosive growth for Facebook in recent years, helping to line the pockets of Mark Zuckerberg and Singapore’s most famous expat entrepreneur Eduardo Saverin as the company prepares to file for IPO on Friday.

Indeed, India has the third most Facebook users in the world (45,825,620) behind the US and Brazil, Indonesia is fourth (42,272,040), and the Philippines is eighth (27,088,320), according to Socialbakers.

“For the Facebook platform itself, Asia is wildly important. But in terms of the future of the platform, it is even more important,” Tom Crampton, head of Asian social media for Ogilvy & Mather, said recently.
