Facebook Conquers the World Map of Social NetworksDCI
Facebook has become the most-popular social network in the world. The company has been ahead in competition since 2009 in countries like Brazil, Mexico, India, and more.
Vincenzo Cosenza, social media analyst has been keeping track of Facebook for the past three years, and has updated his “World Map of Social Networks”. A GIF clearly explains Facebook’s global takeover, from 2009 to the present. Facebook has taken over 127 out of the 137 countries, according to Cosenza’s analysis.
“One of the drivers of its growth is Asia that with 278 million users, surpassed Europe, 251 million, as the largest continent on Facebook. North America has 243 million users, South America 142 million. Africa, almost 52 million, and Oceania just 15 million (source: Facebook Ads Platform). In the latest months Zuckerberg’s Army conquered Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia and Vietnam,” says Cosenza.
Earlier in June, Cosenza found out that Facebook has been in the forefront of social networking in 126 out of the 137 countries that he analyzed. The major countries that use other social network services are Russia, China, and Iran.
Though Facebook has not established its reign in some Asian countries, it is obvious that the company has got nearly 1 billion+ users from Asia. According to the report, the most-used social networking websites around the globe are Facebook, QZone, V Kontakte, Odnoklassniki, and Cloob.
