Distribution of social media used in Belgium 2017-2018 This statistic shows the results of a survey conducted by Cint on the distribution of social media used in Belgium in 2017 and 2018. In 2017, 35.47 percent of respondents stated that they use Facebook. The number of social network users in Belgium is expected to rise in the coming years, eventually reaching 6.64 million users** by 2021. By 2012, the penetration rate of social networks in Belgium is expected to reach 57.76 percent.

Despite an increase in the number of social network users in Belgium, the majority of Belgians do not trust social media. In a survey published by the European Commission, 69 percent of respondents in Belgium stated that they tend not to trust social networks. People residing in France were the least likely to trust social networks, with just eight percent of respondents stating that they tended to trust social network providers.
