Which country is the most active on the Internet?

It’s not too hard to guess which countries have the most total Internet users: China (420 million), the United States (240 million), Japan (99 million), India (81 million) and Brazil (76 million). But figuring out which countries have the highest percentage of their populations online isn't so simple. Can you guess, which has the highest?

Answer: The United Kingdom, 82.5 percent

In the no. 2 through no. 5 spots are:

South Korea, 81.1 percent

Germany, 79.1 percent

Japan, 78.2 percent

Canada, 77.7 percent

The United States is sixth in Internet users as a percentage of the population, at 77.3 percent. Although China has the most users, they represent 31.6 percent of the country’s population. And India’s users, though the fourth most in raw numbers, make up only 6.9 percent of its population.
