In 2023, Taiwan had approximately 22.4 million internet users, with an impressive internet penetration rate of 93.9% of the total population.

Over the previous year (2022 to 2023), the number of internet users in Taiwan increased by 166 thousand, representing a modest 0.8% growth rate. Despite this high level of internet adoption, about 2.23 million people in Taiwan did not use the internet at the beginning of 2023, indicating that approximately 9.3% of the population remained offline.

The forecast for 2028 is 22.8 million i.e. 94.9% of the population. 

These figures underscore Taiwan's strong digital infrastructure and widespread internet access, though there are still segments of the population that could benefit from increased digital literacy and initiatives to promote broader internet usage. Continued efforts to enhance digital inclusion can help bridge the gap and ensure that more individuals in Taiwan can fully participate in the digital economy and society.

At the beginning of 2023, data from top social media platforms indicated that there were 19.35 million users aged 18 and above using social media in Taiwan, representing 95.4% of the total population aged 18 and above. Additionally, 93.2% of Taiwan's total internet user base, regardless of age, utilized at least one social media platform during that period.

 In terms of gender distribution among social media users in Taiwan, approximately 52.0% were female, while 48.0% were male. These statistics highlight the widespread use of social media among adults in Taiwan and the importance of digital platforms as a means of communication and engagement within the population.
