September has begun, and it’s time to look back at our global Facebook country statistics. In our last article on the changes of the Facebook country stats for August, we asked ourselves whether the impressive user growth in the UK was due to their manifold Olympic visitors, or if a lot of British residents signed up with Facebook for the first time.

This means that in fact new UK residents signed up for Facebook, and Facebook itself didn’t count the Olympic vistors as new users of the United Kingdom.
