Social media snapshot: Indonesia
About a third, or 82 million, of Indonesia’s 250 million+ people are online, LaPrensaSA.com reports (via the EFE news service). That’s twice as many Internet users in “the world’s third-largest democratic country” since about a year ago, based on 2013 World Bank data, and 69 million of them are on Facebook. That makes Indonesia Facebook’s 4th-largest market after the US, India and Brazil, respectively. Twitter appears to be Indonesia’s 2nd most popular social media service, with 20 million active users. “In fact, president-elect Jokowi, one of the most popular Indonesians on Twitter with 2.41 million followers, carried out a significant part of his election campaign through social networks by reaching out to internet users,” according to LaPrensa SA. Through Internet.org, Facebook and telecommunications company Ericsson have struck a deal with Indonesian mobile carrier XL Axiata to make the Internet more accessible and affordable in the Indonesian archipelago.
