Updated World Map Of Social Networks 2011

There’ve already been a few maps showing the popularity of specific social networking sites throughout the world, but here’s the most recent “World Map Of Social Networks” we could find. Based on data collected in February 2011, the infographic by Ria Novosti shows how Facebook is the undisputed leader in terms of user numbers, but also that the Chinese Qzone is hot on the heels with 480 million active users. The difference between East and West in general is striking, with Facebook hardly in a pole position in Japan, Russia and China.

It will be interesting to see if Qzone will become the Goliath of social networking despite its country-specific audience, and if Facebook will manage to steal the social networking crown in any of the previously mentioned countries during 2011. According to another infographic, courtesy of Priit Kallas, active Facebook users have grown 55% in Japan and 111% in Russia during the past four months. Other markets such as Brazil, where Orkut is still in the lead, have also seen a tremendous growth in the same period.
