After long hiatus, here is a new article I wrote, albeit on a separate website.
BRAZIL’S DIGITAL ECONOMY
In Brazil, about 35 percent of the population own an internet-capable mobile phone. Over 80 percent use the internet every day (the figure is in correlation with income), 41 percent of them shop online. In Facebook membership, Brazil ranks 2nd worldwide, it overtook Google’s Orkut earlier this year . Over 40 million Brazilians are on Twitter. But even more specifically, Brazil is by far more than a digital developing country. In 2009 Brazil had 65 million internet users (it almost doubled in four years). There are over three million registered .br domains today.
