  1. People continue to hop on board all over Nirmala!

    During my recent Asia trip I noted adoption increasing in rural areas. Even at some really quiet locales outside of the city people were checking Facebook and twitter. Crazy!

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. That’s really awesome! India and China are on the top most countries. Our part of world is improving in information technology!

    China must be highest because of its population. It has done great in computers. Still, because they don’t use English language we could not get benefits with their services and websites. Similarly, I wonder if we can target the Chinese readers :O

  3. No wonder Chinese lead the list . With population like that it is sure that China would lead the list . But I though Indians would come second but they didn’t . Later , I realized that due to the high rural population India does not have that many Internet users .


  4. Hello Nirmala,
    This is indeed a nice insight about the top users of internet. We are in the age of technology and more options are rising; like the mobile devices and GPS devices. If you’re not using the internet as at now, you’re just in the stone age. With the use of internet and tech, i thought the Americans would be in the number one spot πŸ˜‰ . thanks for the post and do have a lovely week ahead

  5. Hi Niramala mam,

    Internet users are rapidly increasing in India and everyone these days (including children) have got a smartphone where they access the web especially Facebook.

    Number of bloggers are also increasing at a high rate. Out of of 150 million Indian Internet users, I think 1 million might have at least one blog. πŸ˜› LOL!

    Hi Nirmala didi,

    It’s a great List by you and good to see INDIA in this list! πŸ˜€

    Ahh..Finally the one thing where INDIA is doing good.. !! πŸ˜€

    Proud that I’m also included in the list of “Internet Users” Without Internet Life Sucks and I even can’t live 24 hours with out net! lolz πŸ˜€

    Thanks for sharing BTW!


    1. Am feeling good with your reply Sugandha!

      Yes, I too feel proud that the Indians are in the highest internet users list.

      πŸ™‚ for reading my post and am suggesting that you can learn a lot of beneficial things using internet. Hope you’ll do πŸ˜‰

  10. Sugandha Agarwal

    ofcourse didi,

    Will surely try to do! πŸ™‚

  11. Woah! You have listed a great statics for all major countries. Glad to see Indians are not behind. Looking forward to see more useful post from you.



  12. Nice to see India ranking in top 5 in the list.

    But I also want to put in here that, we are in top due to the usage of internet for lots of Porn things. In the recent study, Google has revealed that, the most searched term in Google India is Sex and guess we are ranking due to it. And also in china, the Porn has been blocked and banned and yet they stand first.

    So it we who learn a lot from China and develop ourself. We can be proud that we stand 3rd but also same time we should think of the reason behind which made us to stand for these bad things and which also tends people to a lots of Rape. So its time to learn from others.

    I do feel happy as we are one amoung the Internet Builder and without there is no use of internet – We are Bloggers, We Build Internet

    1. Hi Sathya,

      Am really happy and surprised with your comment!

      Agree with you that the crime rate is rapidly increasing along with the technology developments. Internet contains mix of good and bad things.

      learning the stuffs is good but it should not be implemented in a wrong way, hope you are getting my point πŸ™‚

      Yeah, bloggers are building the internet by providing the needful information for the readers.

      It is good to learn the good things to be good πŸ™‚
