Facebook and WhatsApp Are Winning Social Platforms in Argentina

June 15, 2016

Facebook is the most popular social platform for internet users in Argentina, according to a
report by Carrier y Asociados. Nearly 100% of those surveyed say they had used the platform.

The survey, which asked whether internet users had a profile on various social sites, revealed
higher penetration rates than eMarketer estimates for monthly active usage. For example,
eMarketer estimates that this year, just 71.0% of internet users in Argentina will actually use
Facebook on a monthly basis. Overall, eMarketer estimates, 72.7% of internet users in
Argentina will use social networks monthly this year.
While trailing Facebook significantly, WhatsApp had been used by 70% of internet users;
perhaps more surprisingly, Google+ saw significant usage in Argentina. Over 60% of
respondents say they had used the platform as of April 2016.
In July 2015, for example, TNS found that only 34% of internet users in Brazil used Google+ on
a daily basis. In December 2015, comScore MMX reported that Google+ ranked ninth among
social networks in unique visitors in Latin America, with just 8.0 million to Facebook’s 140.6
million. So it seems likely that many of those in Argentina who used Google+ at one time are
not regular users.

Indeed, just 3% of respondents to the Carrier y Asociados survey said Google+ was their
preferred social media platform, less than Twitter and Instagram, though a lower number of
respondents had used those platforms.
And while Facebook might be the most commonly used platform in Argentina, users aren't
necessarily in love with it. About two in five (39%) of those surveyed called Facebook their
preferred platform, which is a solid chunk of respondents, but nearly 10 points behind

Safer Internet Centres, SID Committees and other supporters in each of the countries

About our SID activities

For Safer Internet Day 2017, we are planning a social campaign that promotes to reflect upon
how we use technology. How do we use Whatsapp groups? How do we use cell phones
during dinner time? For the later one, we are promoting our
campaign #CenaSinPantallas (Dinner without screens) launched during our second regional
event on literacy and digital citizenship, "Technology for a better world", which took place in
Buenos Aires, Argentina.

On 7 February 2017, Marcela Czarny, President, will be giving a conference for
Humanities National University in Misiones, Argentina. Andrea Urbas, Director, will
be giving a conference for Costa Rica during the event "Let's join together for a Safer Internet:
Challenges and perspectives" where she will talk about "Technology and online security:
present situation and perspectives".
What we are doing to 'be the change' for a better internet...
The beneficiaries are children and teenagers, as well as teachers, parents and other agents
related to formulating and guaranteeing the respect of their rights.'s approach seeks that the implemented initiatives include information and
communication technologies (ICT) as facilitators of access to information and quality content,
to social and scholarly inclusion, to the right of expression and participation and to a safe and
responsible use of them. is currently leading the NATIC Network which is a Latin American Network to
protect children and teenagers on the internet. The NATIC Network is formed by a group of
civil society organisations in Latin America committed to promoting the rights of children and
adolescents to safe and responsible use of new information and communication technologies.
These organisations have a common framework approach based on the Rights of Children
and shared values, principles and objectives. Association promotes digital citizenship, understanding it as the set of rights and
responsibilities that every "inhabitant" of the online world has. In this "country-nation" without
geographic limits, all the social actors which include the state, the private sector, the
communication media, educational institutions, the family, the children and teenagers must
enforce their rights; but also they must fulfil their obligations, especially the ones related to
protection, education, non discrimination, freedom of expression and access. looks forward to defending children and teenager's rights to a safe and
responsible use of the new ICT by giving them a serious role of participation in all that
concerns them. That is based on our belief that a better internet can only be achieved if all the
parts involved in the use of the new ICT take responsibility for their actions and are aware of
their rights as digital citizens.

About the organisation is a nonprofit civil organisation that works to improve children's and teenager's
quality of life. Together with private and public organisations, international cooperation
agencies and areas of CSR companies, designs and implements initiatives that
promote the fulfilment of children's rights.
