Ethiopia ranks 202nd out of 213 countries in Facebook usage


Ethiopia under the 20-year-old brutal dictatorship ranks at the bottom on every thing, including in the number of social media usage. A statistics by Socialbakers.com shows (see below) that Facebook penetration in Ethiopia is only 0.28 percent, which is one of the lowest in Africa. Poor African nations such as Rwanda, Malwi and Togo have more Facebook penetration than Ethiopia. Meles Zenawi’s vampire regime is restricting Internet growth in Ethiopia to deny the people access to information, which is a key ingredient for building a free and democratic society. EthiopianReview.com and all other Ethiopian independent news web sites and blogs have been blocked in Ethiopia by Meles. .

    It really can be a very good social media to use for political activities. Actually the next Ethiopian revolution can come through face book.
