To Each Their Own

Here’s a great graphic I found on Tim O’Reilly’s blog. Le Monde displayed this graphic in August of 2007, detailing by continent which social networks were most popular. Do any of the graphics surprise you?

It’s no real surprise to me that My Space is most popular in the United States. Facebook was and still is gaining ground on the first giant social networking site. It also surprised me that Facebook was the number one site used in the UK. LiveJournal, the only blog to make this list, is the dominant form of social networking in Russia. However in the Pacific, Friendster is still the major site for social networking. In this article at CNet Asia, they are still growing. They are the third largest social network on the planet, and keeps growing (4.4 million unique hits in January of 2008 alone).
