The most commonly used social networks in each country vary greatly over time.
In recent studies conducted by various companies, there is an important discrepancy in relation to the most popular social media websites around the world.
It is natural that we have led the list in all the studies, but the difference started in second place. Although some studies suggest that Twitter has been followed as a social network, while others have placed Facebook after Facebook.
It has been noted that Facebook created in 2004, since 2007 has already been the leading social network in many countries. India was only one of those countries, which were the slowest growing ones.
Some of the factors associated with the discrepancy between studies are most valuable to them, such as the number of users who visited the site last month (considered active) or the number of pages viewed.
To understand these differences, we present 15 most popular social networks according to two studies.
According to EBIGMA, whose information was based on the Alexa site in February 2013, the 15 most popular social networks were:
Considering the studies of GlobalWebIndex the most popular are:
- Qzone (China)
- Sina Weibo (China)
- Tencent (China)
- Youku (China)
- Todou (China)
- RenRen (China)
- Tecent Weibo (China)
- 51.com (China)
A very important finding in the latter study is that in the 15 most popular social nets are 8 Chinese.
Among the social networks that link higher growth studies also vary greatly.
Some of the identified social networks as being those
with the highest growth are being placed as.
- Tecent Weibo
- Sina Weibo
One of the points where the various studies are unanimous is that indicate that the
current and future trend will be to wildly increase that international and thematic
social networks begin to have.
The themes or niches, social networks are characterized by offering much
more functionality focused on the communities in which they engage,
face to offering generalist social networks.
