Facebook By Numbers

As I finally crossed the 40-friend plateau on Facebook in the last week I thought this might be a bit of fun to do. I swear this didn't take me that long to do, I'm not that much of a geek.

(And I know this should be titled "Facebook By Percentages", but that doesn't really sound as nice, does it?)

By nation:
English - 40%
Scottish - 37.5%
USA - 20%
Other - 2.5% (Hi Sally!)

Female - 65%
Male - 35%
Other - 0% (insert your own joke here)

I know you all so well:
Percentage of my "friends" who I've not met - 10%
Further friends who I've only met once - 5%

Where I know people from:
Church - 50%
Work - 30%
Fellow supporter of by far the greatest team, the world has ever seen - 15%
Uni - 2.5% (Hi Gill!)
Other - 2.5% (Hi Pat!)

One person actually crosses the Church/Work divide, but I'm sure neither he nor I want to think back to a time where earning £2.50 an hour in a summer job was acceptable.

And as a final aside, of my best friends I'd probably estimate that 40 to 50% of them are actually on Facebook.

How and where do you know your Facebook friends from?
