London is the Facebook capital of the world!

facebook-london.jpgThat’s right, us Cockneys can lay claim to being the most work-shirking connected people on the planet, with news that London is now the biggest city network on Facebook.

More than 790,000 Londoners are filling the social network with stuff about beefeaters, jellied eels, and stabbing strangers. We’ve overtaken Toronto to nick top spot, with Facebook’s London massive growing at the rate of 6% a week – double the site’s average.

It’s important, too. By the time The Floods overrun the banks of the Thames, we’ll all be using Facebook on our mobile phones to post status updates as we’re winched to safety from the rooftops. Probably.
