Canadians do not live in igloos, play hockey all of the time, or have moose as pets. Canadians do say toques appose to hats, “pop” instead of “soda” and “chocolate bars” rather than “candy bars”. Canada does have Provinces instead of States, a Prime Minister as a President and they do say EH… a lot.
OH and yes, they have Internet.
According to recent studies, Canadians top all other countries with a whopping 68% amount of time spent on the Internet. It seems that they really are friendly too, with studies showing that Canadians like to get social on Facebook with a penetration rate of about 51% of the population, or 66% of the online population. Canada has become extremely important to Facebook, since 17 million Canadians have a Facebook account.
Canadians love videos as well.
Watching YouTube seems to have become as popular as Canadian bacon, with an average of 147 videos watched each month compared to 100 per U.S. viewer. In Canada, YouTube per capita consumption of video is #1 in the world.
Canadians invaded Twitter.
Twitter has had a 75% boost in Canadian accounts this year alone and did you know the popular Social Media Dashboard, Hootsuite is Canadian? It is. This convenient application has also impressed its homeland, with a 250% growth in Canadian users and 55,000 of its daily tweets are from fellow Canadians.
Canadians love Wikipedia
Canadians on average will read 16 Wikipedia pages and make 217,000 edits a month, which ranks 8th among the most productive countries in the world. Canadians also take the #1 spot at surfing Wikipedia.
We fear Facebook and Google – perhaps we should think of the Canadians. Their next slogan may be… I AM THE INTERNET.
P.S: I am a Canadian
