The data is a little bit older than is ideal, but thanks to the good folk at Smart Insights and their graph above located here, we have an idea just how social Southeast Asian internet users are.

And they really do (or did, leading into the year 2016) rate highly, taking (by % of internet users) 5/10 top places on both Facebook and YouTube, 3/10 on Twitter and 4/10 on Google Plus.

One obvious question to ask is whether increased connections online is actually a greater or lesser act of social interaction, but I will think about that more and post when I have more time. I will also reflect on whether any measure of the extent of social interaction necessarily correlates with, or even reflects more broadly, the quality of sociability.

As always, your thoughts are welcome in the comments.
