Guilty as Charged?- "Malaysians Have Most FB Friends".

Salam,
Please read about this and share your comments. This article was taken from http//thestar.com

Survey: Malaysians have most Facebook friends


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians have the most number of friends on social networking websites like Facebook. They also spend the most hours per week on such sites.

According to a survey conducted by international firm TNS, a Malaysian has an average of 233 friends in their social network, followed by 231 in Brazil and 217 in Norway. Japanese users had the least number of friends, averaging 29.

The survey was based on recent interviews of 50,000 consumers in 46 countries.
“Surprisingly, Chinese consumers only have an average of 68 friends in their networks despite being heavy users of social networking sites,” the survey said.
In terms of hours spent on social sites, Malaysians spent nine hours weekly.
Next were the Russians, with an average of 8.1 hours per week online while those in Turkey spent 7.7 hours a week. The survey also found that rather than using email, consumers were now spending more time on social networking sites.

Commenting on the survey, Tourism Ministry international relations department secretary Mohd Halimi Ibrahim said that social media sites would be a cost-effective way to promote Malaysia.
“Instead of spending billions on expensive advertisements, social media sites allow us to do it for free and quite possibly, reach a larger audience,” he said yesterday.
Halimi added that it also showed that Malaysia was more than capable of holding its own in matters of technology.
“This study also shows that some Malaysians spend far too much time on the Internet, whiling away hours that could be put to much better use,” he said.


NOW, ARE YOU GUILTY AS CHARGED TOO LIKE ME? TO DATE, I HAVE 409 FRIENDS. I BASICALLY HAVE KNOWN THOSE FRIENDS FROM DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AND TIME LIKE THEY WERE MY EX-SCHOOLMATES, COLLEAGUES, COURSE MATES, BLOGGER FRIENDS, KIWI FRIENDS AND ETC. 

MOH HALIMI HAS GOT A STRONG POINT THERE WHEN HE SAID "“This study also shows that some Malaysians spend far too much time on the Internet, whiling away hours that could be put to much better use".  AS SOME OF MY FRIENDS SAID "GET  A LIFE PEOPLE!". DOES THIS MEAN THOSE WHO ARE ACTIVELY USING FB ARE NOT HAVING A GOOD LIFE? PERSONALLY, I STRONGLY DISAGREE. WHAT DO YOU RECKON? ANY COMMENTS?

adyani,
terpulang, setiap kita dah daily plan & tau menguruskan masa..
kakyong la ni memang tak sempat & dah tak amik port sgt dgn FB.. kalo buka pun tidak sampai 5 minit.. dulu tu addiccted juga.. tp bila sudah mbiasakan diri dgn xtvt lain di rumah, rasanya dah x sempat nak ber'peleseran' di FB...

yg penting, gunakan dgn bijak.. ade yg pandai buat duit di FB.. dsb.. ;)

tp utk kata org yg guna FB ni sbg 'x ade life yg baik'... rasanya terlalu misleading...

Affieza said...

I strongly disagree too...
Of course we will have many friends through FB bcoz we start our friendship since in primary school until now. So, we will meet many friends through the journey of our life.

FB can build a close relationship between each other even we are separate in our own way.

Indeed we have had AfFieza.

SALAM,
IF U WANT TO TALK ABOUT TIME, TALK ABOUT QUALITY TIME AND NOT QUANTITY TIME. BUT TOO LITTLE TIME IS ALSO NOT GOOD FOR ANYTHING ! IT DEPENDS ON INDIVIDUALS AND OTHER FACTORS TOO.

transformed housewife said...

Betul jugak pasal Msians ni peramah.

transformed housewife said...

LF- it's indeed how we manage our time wisely.

org malaysia skrg ni berjam2 ngadap fb dan blog... bagus. Tapi saya tak setuju bila mereka guna waktu kerja unuk update blog dan berFB... tidak amanah tu!

transformed housewife said...

Fa10, banyak ofis yg dah block application FB. tapi blog tu rasanya banyak yg belum block kat ofis.
