In Europe at least half the population in a dozen countries is active on Social Media.

Social Media has grown tremendously in Europe in the past years. Today 40% of the population of our continent actively uses at least one social media platform, with 50% or more in a dozen countries. As a comparison the Global Average is 26%.

Some interesting facts are that Serbia and Macedonia are one of the most active users, while Austria and Germany one of the least.
