Facebook adoption on college campuses timeline.
Here’s a timeline that I created that charts the growth in Facebook active users as well as various studies on Facebook adoption by college students. The top half of the timeline shows the percentage of college students with Facebook accounts. The bottom half shows the number of active users as reported by Facebook. As you may guess, assessing the percentage of students on Facebook is like trying to hit a moving target. While this timeline is current as of the date of this post, the percentage of college students on Facebook will change over time and by institution. Additionally, the Facebook census will also change over time. If you’ve collected data on college student use of Facebook, please drop me a line so I can add your information to this timeline.
