Social Media Usage in the Middle East [INFOGRAPHIC]

We came across this infographic from Go-Gulf.com (via Arabian Gazette) and wanted to share it with you. It’s about the demographics and use of social media in the Middle East.  We can’t vouch for the stats, but  sources are found at the bottom.

The most striking statistic:  88% of the Middle East population uses social media on a daily basis.

Another useful stat for western brands adopting a Middle East social media strategy; language usage on Social media platforms is more or less split evenly between English and Arabic.
