Why Facebook is soooo powerful? Because of its viral power feature LIKE

I do a simple and quick calculation on 5 layer viral marketing with LIKE button.

In average, there are 30 local liked friends for each Malaysian Facebook user.

Layer 1: 30X

Layer 2: 900X

Layer 3: 27,000X

Layer 4: 810,000X

Layer 5: 24.3 million

With a Facebook community of 10 million in Malaysia, so in theory, the message published in a Facebook will be reached to 10 million Malaysians before layer 5.

This is how internet breaks the BN monopoly in TV, radio and newspaper.

For Bersih 2.0 case study, with its 200,000 Fans, the message published in its facebook page will reach 10 million Facebook users before layer 3.

For Robert Kuok’s conned by UMNO story in my blog, with 466 liked meaning the message will reach 10 million Facebook users before layer 4.

Good examples of Facebook posting gaining lots of thumbs-up:

(1) 用100块收买非马来大专生参加国庆集会

(2) 国庆集会变商场送百万奖品争人气

(3) 灌水造假出动机器人发“爱国推文”

according to your ever-trusted The Star:

Malaysians have the most number of friends on social networking websites like Facebook. They also spend the most hours per week on such sites.

According to a survey conducted by international firm TNS, a Malaysian has an average of 233 friends in their social network, followed by 231 in Brazil and 217 in Norway. Japanese users had the least number of friends, averaging 29.

Conclusion: The viral effect is hugh in Malaysia. that’s why Ah Jib Kor must have FB to have more ‘like’?

I trust nothing except my own brain power.

How many Malaysians in the 233 friends? The report says nothing about it. I put 30 local facebook friends is from my own best guessing.

The number of Fan is not a big deal at all, with 30 fans in your Facebook, your message will reach to 10 million local FB users by layer 5, probably one or two weeks behind Ah Jir Kor.
