Tom and I are part of the 5 % of Facebook users in Belize between the ages of 45-54. It is not surprising that the majority of users are in the 18-24 bracket. We started using Facebook when our sons were teenagers. And now it is a way for us to connect not just with them, but with family and friends back home in the states and around the world.
After reading these graphics I remembered that the Belize Census information that I posted back in November showed that 26% of Belizeans have computers and only 23% of Belize's population have internet access. However, there are also internet cafes throughout the country and in Belmopan you can use the internet while you dine at the Bull Frog Inn or between classes at the University of Belize. And some people have internet access on their cellphones. Over at the iBelmopan blog they figured out that 90% of Belize's internet users are on Facebook. That number is not at all surprising...it seems that everyone we know who uses the internet here in Belize has a Facebook account.
So how about you...are you on Facebook?
