Believe it or not – Malaysians have the most friends and are also the heaviest users of social networking sites on the planet.

This is according to the latest survey by global market research firm TNS in its largest ever study into people’s online activities and behaviour.

Malaysians have an average of 233 digital friends, followed by 231 in Brazil and 217 in Norway.

On the other end of the spectrum, Japanese have the fewest with 29, followed by 38 in Tanzania and 50 in South Korea.

NONETNS chief development officer Matthew Froggatt said that the results could suggest “a culture that embraces fewer but closer friendships” in some countries.

“Chinese consumers only have an average of 68 friends in their networks despite being heavy users of social networking sites,” said Froggatt.

In addition to having the most friends, Malaysians are also the heaviest users, spending an average of nine hours per week on social networking sites.

Russians ranked second with an average 8.1 hours per week online, followed by Turkey where 7.7 hours a week are spent on social networks.

Malaysiakini, the country’s top news portal, has to-date a total of 72,954 Facebook fans, with its Chinese section garnering the most with 36,022, followed by the Malay section (22,131) and English section (13,901).

Mobile phones increase access

The study also found that consumers are now spending more time on social networking sites than using e-mail, in part fuelled by the rise in Internet access through mobile phones.

“In rapid growth markets such as Latin America, the Middle East and China, the average time spent per week on social networking is 5.2 hours compared to only four hours on email.

“Online consumers in mature markets remain more reliant on e-mail, spending 5.1 hours checking their inboxes compared to just 3.8 hours on social networking.”

The TNS survey covers nearly 90 percent of the world’s online population through 50,000 interviews with consumers in 46 countries.

Froggatt also said that digital sources are overtaking TV, radio and newspapers as the media channel of choice.

“Sixty-one percent of online users use the Internet daily against 54% for TV, 36% for radio and 32% for newspapers.”

Third World leapfrogs technology

It also found that Internet users in growth markets have overtaken mature markets in terms of engaging with digital activities.

For example, Egypt (56%) and China (54%) have much higher levels of digital engagement than mature markets such as Japan (20%), Denmark (25%) or Finland (26%) despite better Internet infrastructure in more advanced countries.

The TNS study, which the researchers hope will become an annual project, also found that countries newer to the digital world are embracing online activities at a faster rate to those in more mature markets.

In China, four out of five users have written their own blog while half in Egypt have similarly done so, compared to only 32% in the United States.

Malaysia also ranked high in photo sharing on social networks.

“The number of online consumers who have ever uploaded photos to social networks or photo sharing sites is 92% in Thailand, 88% in Malaysia and 87% in Vietnam, whilst developed markets are more conservative.

“Less than a third of online consumers in Japan (28%) and under half of those in Germany (48%) have uploaded photos to such sites,” said Froggatt.

  1. WHY MUST UMNO DOMINATED BN BE VOTED OUT IN SARAWAK AND GE13 ?? These are only some of the more.

    ASP Suresh himself proudly admitted that he used to work in the police assassination squad and had assassinated a number of people. And ASP Suresh personally knows the two police officers now on death row for the murder of Altantuya. They used to be his colleagues — or should I say, his partners-in-crime.

    10 people a day go missing in Malaysia, said the Home Minister, Hishammuddin Hussein. And 60% of the cases have been solved. This means 40% of the cases involving 14,000 people have not been solved.

    Considering that Malaysia’s population is only 27 million, 10 cases of missing people a day is quite a large number. That is the same as the number of people who die on Malaysian roads every day — about 10.

    So 10 people die every day in Malaysia due to traffic accidents and another 10 just disappear. And how many more die due to Malaysia’s poor health care system? Maybe the Health Minister can answer that question. Thousands die because of a poor health care system while billions of ringgit is wasted on white elephant projects and study tours.

    Let me say it again: corruption kills people.

    And how about the large number of people who die in prison, while ‘resisting arrest’, or at the police station while being interrogated? Add that to the list and the death toll is very high indeed.

    But what I really want to ask is: how many of those missing persons are actually victims of police hit squads, or what we can consider as assassination targets? Yes, that kind of thing happens in Malaysia.

    ASP Suresh himself proudly admitted that he used to work in the police assassination squad and had assassinated a number of people. And ASP Suresh personally knows the two police officers now on death row for the murder of Altantuya. They used to be his colleagues — or should I say, his partners-in-crime.

    Why do you think they were sent to meet Razak Baginda in the first place if not for the fact that they are experts in eliminating people? And did they not admit, in their meeting with Razak, that they have already killed a number of people? That was, after all, what Razak claimed in his Affidavit, which was submitted to the court to support his application for bail.

    Even the judge, Justice Segera, shook his head in disbelief and said that the Affidavit convinced him even more that Razak is guilty. Of course, after that they removed the judge and replaced him with a judicial commissioner.

    More than 35,000 people have gone missing over the last ten years. And 14,000 of those cases remain unsolved. Do you need to be a rocket scientist to figure out why?

  2. KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 12 — The Najib administration should explain the tender awards process of four new tolled highways, amid reports of them being directly awarded, DAP MP Tony Pua said today.

    The DAP national publicity secretary said that recent news reports on the tender acquisition of the four highways in Peninsular Malaysia proved that none of the projects were being tendered on a open and competitive basis.

    “This piece of news comes as a surprise, first with the Government and Economic Transformation Programmes prioritising and focusing on public transportation, while secondly and more importantly there appears to be no indication at all that these projects are being tendered on an open and competitive basis as promised under the Prime Minister’s New Economic Model (NEM),” Pua said in a statement.

    People Power must stop the rot. The whole nation is rotting and milked by two men, Najib at Federal and Taib in Sarawak. Not a week gone by without the Opposition unearthing some dubious deals regarding mega projects involving billions of ringgit. These corrupt deals had been hidden from the rakyat and their representatives in Parlaiment.

    Malaysians must take action. Malaysians must vote out UMNO dominated BN governemnt for the blattant abuse of power,for sabotaging our economy through corrupt practices and dealings,for frightening away investors by tampering with our judicial system and interfering in the work of PDRM.

  3. Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Development Company will be funding BN’s election expenses in exchange for a few mega projects worth hundred billion of ringgits without open tenders. How does this fit into Najib’s NEM and help the poor bumiputras in Malaysia?

    Say NO to UMNO/BN. WE must vote for change. We must vote against UMNO/BN. Vote Pakatan to save Malaysia.

    • We shall also vote against the perversion of JUSTICE under UMNO dominated BN rule.

      The perversion of justice in Malaysia has turned our once beautiful nation into a police state rife with corruption and crippled Malaysia’s development in all areas: social, economic and political.The perversion of justice in Malaysia began in earnest under the rule of Mahathir.

      Under Najib, PDRM, MACC and AG practised selective prosecutions. In the present days Indonesia or even Vietnam and Cambodia, the authorities would have sprung to actions to nab a chief minister like Taib Mahmud when corruption reports were lodged.

      Malaysia can never ever move forward and transform itself into a prosperous and competitive nation if the current government under Najib does not take ownership of its organic weaknesses and implement reforms.

      Now, it is up to us MALAYSIAN. The power to do what is right and to correct what are wrongs lies in our hands. We must act decisively to save our beloved nation for our beloved children.

  4. Some of 1.2 million civil servants are busier with social networking than their works.KSN should check before it too late for too bad.There are too many dead woods and seats warmers in public sectors.Do you believe that Msia has the largest civil servants in the world with ratio of 1 to 28.Look east policy of Mahatir referring to Japan has only 1 million for 120 million people,ratio 1 to 120.This is Wolves-like professionals with golden bowls.Cari rezeki lah.

  5. 1. The opposition alliance, Pakatan Rakyat, has already made an unprecedented promise to the electorate, that is, to return

    all land stolen by “the politicians, the state government and big companies from Peninsular Malaysia” to the people.

    2. The second promise is to trace and return the ill-gotten gains of the politicians “to the public treasury”. This would be a massive undertaking involving forensic accounting, Interpol, foreign governments and the United Nations. The role of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission can be discounted.

    3. The third promise is to return political autonomy to Sarawak as pledged under the 1963 Malaysia Agreement.

  6. To Michael Manyin. Let me share with you what is development based on my limited education background.

    Development is about freedom from misery and suffering, form hunger, from illiteracy, from disease, from poor housing and insecurity. After 47 years under BN rule, 75% of Dayaks have yet to enjoy the fruits of responsible development.The type of development we witnessed in Sarawak were driven by the greeds of big corporations owned either by Taib Mahmud’s family or cronies.

    Your children have never spent their school holidays in a remote longhouse and they will not want to. Neither will you and your wife spend your annual leaves in a longhouse within your constituency. So what do you know about development?

  7. Sarawak Report is deeply saddened to inform of the tragic and untimely death of Taib Mahmud’s former aid in the United States. It is speculated that he may have taken his own life, but the Coroner is withholding judgement pending further investigations.

    Ross Boyert, aged 60, was found with a bag tied around his head in a Los Angeles hotel room last week. He leaves a wife and daughter. He had worked for over 12 years as the sole manager of a number of the office blocks and residences owned by the Taib family in San Francisco, California and Seattle, Washington State. This included the FBI’s top security facility, the Abraham Lincoln Building in Seattle, for which Boyert had been given a maximum personal security clearance to enter.

    Taib’s US property interests

    As Sarawak Report revealed in a series of recent exposes, Taib Mahmud himself is secretly the majority shareholder of the company Sakti International, which owned much of the real estate managed by Ross Boyert. Officially however, the shareholders were listed as Rahman, Mahmud and Jamilah Taib (his children), along with their uncles Arip and Onn Mahmud, the Chief Minister’s brothers. The sole Director of the Company was first Rahman (Sulaiman) Taib (Taib’s son), and then Sean Murray (his son in law).

    Ross worked on a major programme of refurbishing and letting out the Taib properties, particularly a flagship office block at 260 California Street, which runs through the centre of San Francisco. When Boyert first came to the company it was failing under the management of youthful Rahman Taib (then still a student) and was facing serious debts. Ross was able to turn fortunes round, leaving Sakti with a net worth of US $80 million at the time of his departure in 2006.
