World Map of Social Networks (June 2010)

Last year Vincenzo Cosenza, produced a very useful visualisation highlighting the dominant social networking service by country; this month he has re-done the figures (current June 2010) and the results, while not surprising, really hit home how big Facebook has become; it’s the dominant network in most countries, with a few exceptions like QQ in China and Orkut in Brazil.

Also of interest in this table, showing the three most popular social networking services in a number of countries.  Here in Australia, Facebook dominates, with Twitter in second place, with MySpace hanging on in third; it’s interesting that, despite the hype and media visibility, MySpace still remains number two in the US, while LinkedIN ranks higher in the UK and Canada.
