Social media around the world: MySpace out, QQ in?

Posted: 09:33 AM ET

I love this map of social media around the world, posted at ReadWriteWeb this week.

The most interesting tidbit is the fact that QQ - not Facebook or MySpace or Twitter - is the largest online social network in the world. The site has 300 million users and is the biggest network in China.

Also of note: the site says Facebook officially has "colonized Europe," and MySpace has "lost its leadership everywhere (except Guam)." You can find some more background on MySpace's slip from the top of the social-media world with this story.

The BBC has some good info on China's requirement that all computers have a screening software. I wonder what impact this will have on online discourse.

Check out some of the sites from around the world and let me know what you think. Any interesting ideas we should adopt in the U.S.?

I think you should look at this startup its worth taking a look at it.The page is simple and gives you lots of goodies.Its also moving at a fast pace up on Alexa rankings.Its fresh and new they call it telesocializing.Great features check it out.

sary b   June 14th, 2009 12:47 pm ET kinda creeps me out. I joined it to sell stuff on craigslist annd all of a sudden I was getitng calls on my *bueno number* form people in weird places like barbados. i guess it tis good if you want to make internatnal calls. but if you want to post pics of urself in a jus bikini bottom or sthng they get erased. so for that i am stay with myspace.

Mr. Sutter..Have a look at, a social network for traders. It is a very useful, free tool, and a major up-and-comer in social networking and information/communications technology. You might want to review this one...

Over the years Craigslist has become a very popular online destination for arranging for dates, and sex.The personals section allows for postings that are for "strictly platonic", "dating/romance", and "casual encounters".,.
