//Cyprus had second largest share of population using social media in EU in 2023


In 2023, approximately 83% of Cyprus’s population engaged with social media platforms (such as Facebook, X, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok), as indicated by data released by Eurostat, the statistical service of the European Union. This figure surpassed the EU average of 59%!


Denmark reported the highest proportion of individuals creating user profiles and contributing content on social media platforms (91%), followed by Cyprus (83%) and Hungary (81%).


Conversely, France (44%), Germany (49%), and Italy (53%) reported the lowest percentages of social media participation.


Across 224 out of 273 EU regions, social media engagement exceeded 50%.


So why is Cyprus so reliant on Social Media?


The country’s high score is largely due to its penetration into the major social platforms – a testament to how important they are to everyday communication and to connecting people and businesses, keeping them all up with the latest developments, more easily than ever before.


For many Cypriots, it’s also become a primary source for news and updates on current affairs both at home and around the world. Moreover, social media enables businesses in Cyprus to expand their reach into national and international markets and provide more opportunities for economic growth in the region.


Overall, Eurostat data highlights just how essential social media has become in everyday life – not only providing us with entertainment but also keeping us informed and connected across borders. It stands as a reminder of how technology can improve our lives if used properly and responsibly.

It’s clear that social media has become an integral part of life in Cyprus – so much so that it can no longer be ignored when considering how individuals interact with one another or how businesses market themselves online.
