It looks like Saudi Arabians are joining the Snapchat trend in droves with the kingdom ranking No. 2 in the world for penetration among Internet users.
According to GlobalWebIndex, some 9 percent of Saudis with Internet access are now on the instant photo-message app. Coming in at No. 1 in the world, Ireland leads Saudi Arabia by 3 points with 12 percent of its Internet users utilizing the app.
Within the region, the United Arab Emirates has 7 percent of its Internet users Snapchatting followed by Turkey with 6 percent.
Interestingly, globally teens (classified as 16- to 19-year-olds) have been turning to the app in large numbers, however that trend seems to be lagging within the Middle East. While Saudi Arabia comes in No. 2 for the percentage of overall Internet users, it only places ninth for percentage of teen users.
With 22 percent of Saudi Arabia's teens on Snapchat, it trails significantly behind the global leader, which is once again Ireland with 50 percent of its teens on Snapchat.
The UAE comes in behind Saudi Arabia once again with 22 percent of its teens on the app, followed by 20 in Turkey.
Of course, it's no surprise that Saudis are avid Snapchatters. Just over a week ago Snapchatters in Mecca successfully campaigned to host a live story on the app during the Night of Destiny, showcasing their city, culture and traditions.
