How millions turned for the first time to Facebook in Japan after Earthquake | The Wall Blog | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
Japan has felt the same way about Facebook since it launched here in 2008. Awareness is high of course, but Japanese weren’t ready to accept Facebook into their social media milieu. According to Social Bakers, Facebook Japan had creeped up to between 2.3 to 2.4 million users when the Great Tohoku Disaster – a 9.0 earthquake – struck the island nation.

As of the first week of June there are now more than 3.6 million users in Japan, and growing quickly. According to CheckFacebook.com Japan is one of the fastest growing Facebook countries and is adding 211,000 users a week and should at this rate pass five million users by the end of the month.

It concludes that there is evidence that social networks are living up to their potential for having some ‘influence [on] a participatory governance role’, as the DSG delicately puts it.
