A client of mine just asked me to research current Facebook stats in Ireland and so I utilised the facebook page advertising tool to collect some basic information.
At the time of writing (30/11/2011), there are 2,060,740 facebook users.
53% of facebook users in Ireland are Female.
46% of the entire population (4,484,300 according to CSO) are on Facebook
I’ve also created a summary chart with Facebook’s age distribution spread in Ireland for anyone that wants to download, share or use these statistics in presentations
