Weltkarte der führenden Social Networks

Vincenzo Cosenza hat auf Basis der Daten von Alexa und Google Trends eine Weltkarte erstellt, auf der die in den jeweiligen Ländern im Juni 2009 führenden Social Networks abzulesen sind (zum Vergrößern auf das Bild klicken):


Vincenzo Cosenza hat Folgendes festgestellt:

  • Facebook has almost colonized Europe and it’s extending its domination with more than 200 millions users
  • QQ, leader in China, is the largest social network of the world (300 million active accounts)
  • MySpace lost its leadership everywhere (except in Guam)
  • V Kontakte is the most popular in Russian territories (looks a lot like Facebook)
  • Orkut is strong in India and Brazil (this one was a little scary because it already knew my name)
  • Hi5 is still leading in Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and other scattered countries such as Portugal, Mongolia, Romania (Hi5 is a San Francisco based Company)
  • Odnoklassniki is strong in some former territories of the Soviet Union
  • Maktoob is the most important Arab community/portal
