Amazing link! Thanks for sharing.

I think this really shows (or at least emphasizes) the difference of US and EU in social media adoption. In age group of 25-34 creators of in US is 30% and in EU it's 11%. South Korea certainly is in it's own league... Does it have something to do with the age pyramid in South Korea? I would guess that there's a large population of rather young people compared to older people. Like the opposite of Finland. :)

Tomi, you might know the answer: are the South Koreans mainly/solely contributing in their local social networks (ie Cyworld and stuff) or do they also visit English sites?

And one more observation: the site is one good example of how to promote a book! I was ready to buy...

Dear Tommi,

In terms of your pyramid - South Korea is networked by broadband in a way that is quite amazing. enabled by a vision of the digital and networked world.

The US is the mother to the DNA of the web - though we did have Tim Berners Lee and so much great thinking abut social networks, communities, new business models comes out of the US more naturally.

Here in Europe we stymied adoption of the internet until very recently for a whole variety of reasons in the same way that mobile operators don't realise the very real and very valuable assets they possess in raw but very rich data.

And please recommend our book to a friend

Thanks for dropping by
