Americans are More Addicted to LinkedIn than Twitter (STUDY)

Are you as shocked by the title as we are? Yes, it is true.

A recent study by a digital measuring company, ComScore recently unveiled the top ten Countries that use LinkedIn and Twitter the most with the U.S coming in as the third Country most addicted to LinkedIn, which is not unexpected since it is a social networking site for businesses.

What was unforeseen was the lack of presence on the Internet penetration by reach for the U.S and the real-time  social networking site, Twitter, although it does have a strong American Twitter population, the U.S. did not make the list for Twitter…at all.

Here are Top 10 Countries in Internet Penetration for LinkedIn.com and Twitter.com by Reach (%)
