If you haven’t heard, Facebook is a pretty prominent site.
In this latest update to the World Map of Social Networks, Vincenzo Cosenza from Vincos.it displays what most who use social media likely already knew: Facebook is taking over the world. They are surpassing local and country-specific social networks to tie the world into one global web unlike anything since the invention of, well, The Web.
Mixi and Hyves are the only other sites that are more popular than Facebook in multiple countries, while 8 other social networks still reign in their home countries. For now.
At least Google’s Orkut still rules in Brazil.
