Japanese People Have the Fewest Friends

Could it be that people in Japan are just too darned busy to be able to spend as much time cultivating online friendships?

There can be no doubt that social networking has taken off (which would make a good tweet, hmm) but recent research by research firm TNS has shed some light about variations on how we use it around the world, as reported by the BBC.

The research, for which 50,000 people in 46 countries were interviewed showed that Japan, probably the most tech-savvy country on the planet, is also the one where people have, on average, the least number of friends online.
