Facebook Juggernaut

Okay, this is somewhat disturbing:
...in June 2007, 11.4 million Canadians logged onto Facebook, compared with only 343,000 in the same period last year.

Canada overall does continue to grow rapidly for Facebook, at about 4 per cent a week...

So, 34.7% of the country already uses Facebook, and at 4% weekly, we have six months until the entire country is a member.

Disclosure: I am not a member. I do not own a cell phone, either. I cannot fathom why people spend hours 'Facebooking'.

I suspect that 34.7% must be much higher among my demographic, 18-24, as well. Insanity. Social networks, I guess, have a tendency to become more appealing as more people use them.
