Atlanta LOVES Facebook!

July 15, 2009

A new study shows Atlanta embracing Facebook faster than any other major metropolitan area. The number of Facebook users in the Atlanta area rose 142% the last six months, from 535,000 to nearly 1.3 million, according to a digital marketing firm.
Los Angeles (97 %) and Houston (71%) saw the next highest increases. Peter Corbett, a 2003 Emory grad who founded the marketing firm, said he has no solid theories to explain the Atlanta surge. He’s analyzed Facebook usage for two years using data Facebook publicly supplies to its advertisers. 
 At the end of 2008, Facebook usage in the Atlanta area rose just 6.5 %.  Overall, nearly 72 million Americans now use the social networking site, and Facebook’s demographics keep getting older and older.
