It's almost the end of 2009 and we have yet to see who leads the race track in the most popular, the most effective and the most functional innovations of the year.
In the social networking world, It's Facebook again! After taking its toll in the world wide web since 2004, Facebook has proven to be most prominent social networking site in five years. With over 350 million users worldwide, Facebook continues to rise its fame in the industry.
This is evidenced by an Italian writer, blogger and photographer Vincenzo Cosenza's visual mapping of the social networking sites used worldwide. He gathered his data from the most recent traffic data (December 2009) as measured by Alexa & Google Trends for Websites.
The world map of social networking sites, deliberately identifies the dominance of Facebook anywhere in the globe as compared to other social net sites. It is seconded by Facebook clone Vkontakte.ru, which has blocked Facebook from establishing its name. Vkontakte.ru is the most and perhaps the only popular social net site in Russia.
Other social networking sites that have remained its control over certain countries included Hi5 in Peru, Portugal, Romania, Thailand and Mongolia; QQ is still ahead of everyone else in China, with an expected estimated increase of users to 840 million in 2013.
