  • What is the source of “around 2 million twitter users from Pakistan”?

    • admin

      • Saddam

        but it could also be wrong. as i can also say 3 million stead of 2 million..

    • Shahid Saleem

      I think number of users is not as interesting figure as number of ACTIVE users. I have run into local people who tweet three times in six months and that’s it, never again.

  • seems, youth got nothing to do except facebooking…

  • everyone says facebook a time wasting thing but very less really use facebook in positive way.

    • Junaid

      That’s why they are saying it, If you are using something in the positive way, then it’s not time waste

    • Shahid Saleem

      Everyone commenting on this blog is wasting his or her time, too. Yet that does not stop you, Nouman…?

      • irtza

  • can somebody explain the +ve use of facebook???

  • I say that facebook break trend of chatting into commenting but this is time waste that people share everything on facebook during walking,talking,eating or anything and his friends comment on it and in the above ratio of female 50% of fake thats a biggest point of wasting…

    R U counting unique users, or just accounts. If you are counting users on accounts base, then let me tell you one simple fact. I know many FB friends with multiple accounts, and our Pakistani fellows are mashallah very advanced in “do numberi” like this.
    So in this case 5 million accounts are actually just 1 million unique users.

  • Humayun
