Number Crunch: Australian Social Stats

It's that time of year again: the days are getting longer, the weather warmer, the trees in bloom.

Which means it's also time for SMK to take the digital pulse of the land Down Under.

Top dogs

With over half the country signed up, Facebook remains the most popular platform in the country. In fact over 200,000 new users signed up in the last three months. But YouTube isn't far behind.

Facebook currently has 13.4 million Australian users, closely followed by YouTube (12.9m).

In distant third comes Tumblr (4.8m), LinkedIn (3.9m) and Twitter (2.8m).

Facebook fling

Australian Facebookers are almost evenly split along gender lines, with 47% male and 53% female users.

The largest age segment on the platform is the 25 – 34 year range.

Social stars

Meanwhile over at Twitter actress/model Jasmine Curtis Smith has the most followers in the land with 1.65 million faithful.

She's followed by K-Rudd (1.42m) and cricketer Michael Clarke (892K followers).

Mobile mates

Australians are still mad about iPhones. Apple's iOS remains the dominant operating system with 64% market share, although Android is slowly gaining moment and currently sits at 33%.

When it comes to desktop we're a bit more egalitarian. Chrome is still our favourite desktop browsers with 41% market share, followed by Internet Explorer (27%) and Firefox (19%).

Location, location
