According to Alexa.com, which ranks sites according the daily web traffic of the Alexa toolbar community, Facebook is the number two site in Canada right now, second only to Google.
On a global view, Facebook didn’t even make the top ten. Go Canada! And Facebook didn’t have to mention beer, hockey or plaster the site with maple leafs to get us to buy in. Are you paying attention, marketers? Frankly though, I’m convinced that a lot of this success has to do with BEC attendees plastering photos of Chretien all over Facebook. I haven’t found Chretien’s profile yet but when I do, I’ll definitely send him a virtual maple syrup and ask him to be friends with me.
