Facebook Fans of Muscat Confidential - Demographics

As I'm writing this, Muscat Confidential just reached 400 fans on Facebook. (you can become number 401 by clicking here). As a fan you get feeds to your facebook account, make comments on facebook, plus it means you can see the posts even if (once again) I get blocked by OmanHel...

What can I say? I'm flattered. The fan site was set up and is administered by Mohammed S. Al-Tamami, Founder & CEO of IT Company Tamami Networks LLC.

So, who are these fans? Note: this analysis is from before they reached the 400 - there were ~380 fans analysed.

Country of residence:
Facebook fans by country: Oman dominates with over 60%

No surprise there, I had to clip the graph otherwise Oman dominates. Most surprising? Sudan, with 2 fans!

Sex Ratio:

Most fans are guys, by a narrow margin, with 203 Males vs 165 Females. No surprise there I guess? Seems pretty evenly balanced. However, the biggest group by age/gender is 25-34 yr old females, at 74 fans. Ms. Dragon is probably just a little jealous...

So, thanks fans! Spread the word!!


  1. Oh, you are getting sucked into it. Argh!

  4. Like this a LOT. Waiting on more updates..

    P.S.Wishing u LUCK.

  5. I am so happy that I joined you on facebook, it gives a real sense of connection with the beautiful country and people of Oman. I am presently visiting with my husband - Artist Alan Reed who has an exhibition of his exquisite watercolour paintings of Oman at the Bait Muzna Gallery in Muscat. After being commissioned by the Diwan to do several paintings, this inspired him to come and see the amazing landscape for himself and thankfully brought me along with him. This is the most beautiful country in the world and we have a great respect for His Majesty Sultan Qaboos and the way in which he has led this country for the past almost 40 years.
    Alan has also done some wonderful watercolours of the Jewel of Muscat, Oman Sail which have been greatly admired and purchased thank you for that.
    This visit is our 5th up to now and we hope to have the opportunity to come back many more times in the future.
    Best Wishes from Susan Reed

  6. Thought 400 fans isn't much for MC. But it is 435 now.. wow.
