Adoption rates


Turkey has been a thorough consumer of communication technologies, first with the widespread adoption of cell phones in the ‘90s, then with the rapidly increasing use of social network services in the past 5 years. Today, Turkey has a 90% penetration rate in cell phone subscriptions and more than 20 million Facebook users, being the 4th after the US, UK, and Indonesia. The contemporary digital ecosystem is mediated by widespread use of internet-enabled smart phones, web based social network services, blog networks, P2P file sharing networks, and pirate DVD retailers.
