Thailand’s internet penetration rate is ranked among the top in Asean. Facebook revealed that Bangkok is Facebook's capital, with over 8.6 million accounts. Based on a survey by the Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA), children and youth, aged from 5 to 28 years, are the group that has the highest internet penetration rate of 75% and spend 54.2 hours per week online, or close to 8 hours per day.
