What is it about SE Asia and Facebook?

I was working on some comparative numbers. Most of these are recent and from reliable, credible sources. Interesting insights.

Most people think Facebook use is a subset of Internet use. But in SE Asia, Internet use is always lower than Facebook use. South Asia is different. Except for Nepal, where Facebook use is higher than Internet use, Internet users outnumber Facebook users.

I guess this says that the ITU methodology for measuring Internet users is in even worse shape than we claimed.

But one more thing. Myanmar has overtaken India in SIMs/100 people.
