Facebook Close To World Domination
Facebook is the most dominant social media platform on the planet as it is the most heavily used in 127 of 137 countries around the world which have been tracked by Alexa.
A “world map of social networks” composed by Vincenzo Cosenza is created every June and December to reveal which social platform is most popular in every country around the world.
Facebook has over 1 billion active users every month and so it is not particularly surprising that it has retained its spot of social champion.
The only challenge now left for Facebook is to overcome rivals in countries where governments have blocked the site. A difficult task.
The continued growth of Mark Zuckerberg’s creation comes due to a rise of popularity in Asia where is has almost 300 million users (278,000,000) which recently overhauled Europe’s 251 million according to the Facebook Ads Platform.
These two surpass the other continents where North America has 243 million users, South America has 142 million, Africa almost reaches 52 million and Oceania has 15 million.
The December edition of the map shows five different social platforms are top in at least one country in the world. Facebook, QZone, V Kontakte, Odnoklassniki and Cloob.
Do you think Facebook will eventually rule the world?
