Taiwanese love social networking; 80% registered on Facebook
Taipei, May 1 (CNA) Taiwanese love social media, with more than 80 percent of them having Facebook accounts, according to a survey on social network use by local people over 12 years old published Monday.
The results published by the Innovative DigiTech-Enabled Applications and Services Institute under the Institute for Information Industry, a non-government organization, show that Taiwanese on average have four social media accounts.
Facebook topped the ranking of social networking at 90.9 percent, followed closely by Line at 87.1 percent.
Except for those aged over 55 (only 60 percent), the ratio of Line use among all age groups is as high as over 80 percent.
A further analysis of people visiting social media and networking sites shows that the frequency of visiting Line and Facebook per week is as high as 85 percent, followed by YouTube (44.8 percent), PTT (34.6 percent), and Instagram (20.1 percent).
