Facebook #1

It seems all the hype about privacy concerns was just that, hype.

Canada passed the 16 million users mark in May, according to research firm Inside Network.

More than 912,000 Canadians signed up for the site last month, a 6% increase in membership.

Inside Network says an estimated 47.9% of Canadians are on Facebook, making Canada one of the most plugged-in countries in the world.

Overall, Canada is the fourth largest market on Facebook, on a per capita basis, behind Iceland, Norway and Hong Kong. About 59.6% of Iceland's population has a Facebook profile.

But among larger countries with at least 10 million citizens, Canada is No. 1.
