The Dutch are big users of social media and blogs

The Dutch are among the keenest users of social media networks in Europe, according to European statistics office Eurostat.

Seven out of 10 people in the Netherlands are active on websites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, while some 17% have a personal website or blog, the highest proportion in Europe.
However, fewer than six in 10 Dutch people read the news online, which is slightly below the EU average, the Eurostat figures show.
