Facebook Leads Social Networks Around the Globe

Facebook Continues to Grow Around the Globe

Facebook’s international growth continues at a torrid pace in many countries around the world. Now, Vincenzo Consenza – translator of Inside Facebook’s Facebook Marketing Bible in Italian – La Bibbia del Marketing su Facebook – has created a world map visualizing just where Facebook leads, and where it trails other regional networks, based on Alexa and Google Trends data.

As you can see from Cosenza’s map, Facebook is leading in many large markets around the globe, with some notable exceptions. Facebook’s international growth over the last 18 months has been nothing short of remarkable. Currently, over 70% of Facebook’s over 200 million active users are located outside the United States, and the sire has been fully translated by users into over 60 languages, ith dozens more in process.

Nevertheless, Facebook isn’t close to QQ or other market leaders in China, but Orkut is still leading in Brazil and India, Hi5 in Mexico and a few other countries around the world, Maktoob is leading in some middle easter countries, and VKontakte is leading in Russia .
