Re: List of Social Networking Sites from Alexa

Top 3 Social Networking Sites by Country:

Australia: Facebook, MySpace, Twitter
Canada: Facebook, MySpace, Flickr
India: Facebook, Orkut, Hi5 (Twitter is a close fourth)
France: Facebook, Skyrock, MySpace,
China: QQ, Xiaonei, 51
Germany: Facebook, StudiVZ, MySpace
Italy: Facebook, Netlog, Badoo
Russia: V Kontakte, Odnoklassniki, LiveJournal
Spain: Facebook, Tuenti, Fotolog
United Kingdom: Facebook, Bebo, MySpace
United States: Facebook, MySpace, Twitter


- 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
