Curious response to criticism of Myanmar Facebook user post

Posted on August 29, 2016  /  0 Comments

The point of the post about Myanmar’s Facebook users was to make the point that it was sensible to use Facebook user numbers as floor for Internet user estimations. But someone who commented on what I had tweeted appeared to think it was some flaw on the part of Myanmar or its people:

I was thinking why, when I recalled what a speaker from the Thai telecom industry association had said during his presentation at the e agriculture event. In his talk, the number of Thai Internet users and Thai Facebook users was identical: 38 million. He was not buying the rubbish numbers propagated by the ITU. Why can’t we accept that our questions and ways by which we arrive at indicators are flawed? Why blame the people of Myanmar or any other country?
