The BBC reports on a research project examining global online behavior that has found Japanese users to have the fewest friends on social networking sites. Research firm TNS interviewed 50,000 of the world's 801,400,000 internet users (0.006%) to come to their conclusions.
The results could suggest "a culture that embraces fewer but closer friendships," thinks TNS's chief development officer Matthew Froggatt.
More likely it suggests a culture that doesn't embrace online social networking. Just guessing.
