Global Social Media Sites Top 10 (as of April 2010)
2. Twitter has definitely gotten a lot of face time in the news lately, however, it still has some work since it’s in its infancy. Luckily for avid users, the creators are continually working on new features and better functionality.
4. Up until this last year, MySpace was easily the number one social network. However, MySpace is falling behind — some might say it’s been left in the dust. Although it’s in decline, MySpace still holds value for musicians and artists.
5. Although Ning has millions of users, it’s little known and utilized by most people. Ning has revolutionalized social media in a lot of ways in how it boasts thousands of niche networks within itself.
6. Bebo, one of the better-known social network sites among the smaller sites, and, like MySpace, gives users the option to customize their profile. Bebo has recently increased traffic because of new features that let users see their friends’ activity on other social networking sites.
7. Although it’s little known in the U.S., Orkut is extremely popular in other countries, including Brazil and India. Most surprisingly is that its owned and operated by Google.
8. Hi5 has been floating around as a social network for a while, but has never been able to keep up with the competition of Facebook, MySpace and others. It has most of the same features as MySpace and Facebook, but is more popular in Central America.
9. Many people think that social networking began with MySpace, but it really originated with Friendster. It remains a top-notch social network similar to MySpace and Facebook, despite being overtaken by them a few years ago.
