Are you a Social Networks pro?

Royal Pingdom found 29 social networks with more than one million visitors per day; the data is as of feb, 2011 but I think it still testifies the fact that I am not the pro I thought I was.

Of their list:

  • I am a member of 6 7 (Update 1: I found I am on Orkut as well)
  • I had heard of another 9 8
  • I had no idea the remaining 14 even existed

Surprises for me:

  • Orkut has 51M daily visitors? really ?
  • Odnoklassniki (the russian equivalent of with a FB flavor) is not much larger than business-oriented vKontakte
  • Qzone (chinese MySpace) has 480 million members and is way larger than Renren (chinese Facebook), clocking in 12 times its daily visitors
  • Hyves, Tuenti and Renren attract about the same traffic – all three popular in one country only, but the countries are Holland, Spain and China

Update 2: a couple of friends replied so I propose a simple self-scoring system: 2 points for each membership, 1 point for each “heard of”. In the comments, thank you.

  1. What stands out for me here is how small the Twitter group is – a few people posting a lot, while the Facebook community has a broader reach – many people posting a little

  2. Hi gianni,

    I am member of three (6 points) and heard of 8 networks listed there (8 points). So I sm ending up with 14.

    Whatever happened to 4square?

    • Marianna,
      I guess they measure only access to website ant use of app. Most Foursquare use is on the app, and not on the site, so it figures it’s not in here.

      I think you’re right, but I put it down to maturity – Twitter is still in the early majority stage, while FB is full mass market
