World Map of Social Networks

Let’s take a drive around the international digital-sphere. Social networking is quickly emerging as the horse in front for brand planning online. Social media  is a catch-all term to describe websites where users or members share content, opinions, insights, experiences, perspectives and media themselves.

Valleywag has mapped out the world according to which social network a country is using the most:

  • Orkut leads in the Indian subcontinent, as well as Brazil.
  • Facebook is stronger, internationally, than Myspace, with surprising strongholds in the Middle East.
  • is the most international of all the social networks, leading in Peru, Colombia, Central America, and other, scattered countries such as Mongolia, Romania, and Tunisia.
  • both Bebo and Skyblog follow colonial patterns, the first strong in smaller English-speaking countries such as Ireland and New Zealand, and the latter in Francophone countries;
  • and Friendster, the original social network, leads all across Southeast Asia.
  • Fotolog, a photo service defeated in the US by Friendster, has re-emerged as the dominant social network in Argentina and Chile.
