1. Facebook – 12,200,000 Australian users/accounts (up approx 665,460 accounts).
2. YouTube – 11,250,000 UAVs (steady)
3. WordPress.com – 3,200,000 (steady)
4. Blogspot – 2,950,000 (up 50,000)
5. LinkedIn – 2,900,000 (steady)

14. Reddit – 185,000 (steady)

17. Foursquare – 51,000 (steady)
18. Digg – 33,000 (steady)
19. Delicious – 25,000 (down 6,000)

Key Points to note:

  • Facebook has had a big jump this month. I think this is either Facebook tweaking their ads tool, or a large number of new users signing up. This could be the yearly growth spurt you see from new users 13 years of age signing up – not in one month, but Facebook refreshing their reporting tools to possible include signups over seveal months.
  • There has been a slight dip in users this month for Tumblr – does this have anything to do with the acquisition by Yahoo? I’d say: ‘hopefully not’.
  • The main blog networks and LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube dominate the other top social networks accessed.
  • Smaller second tier social networks have trouble maintaining regular monthly users over a longer period of time.
