    Which country has the most engaged social network users? I had assumed it would be the US, when I first read the question. But I was very wrong, the US comes ninth on the list and Russia is first.

    Is your country on the list below;


    1. Russia
    2. Brazil
    3. Canada
    4. Puerto Rico
    5. Spain
    6. Finland
    7. United Kingdom
    8. Germany
    9. United States
    10. Colombia
    11. Mexico
    12. Chile
    13. Ireland
    14. Turkey
    15. Venezuela
    16. France
    17. Australia
    18. New Zealand
    19. Switzerland
    20. Italy

    What I find interesting is the social networking sites used by people from various countries. Here in Thailand there is a large varied expat population who make use of various sites to keep in touch with their friends back in their home countries.

    Thai's generally use www.hi5.com
    Fillipinos use www.friendster.com
    Middle Easterners use www.tagged.com
    And white foreigners use www.facebook.com

    But no, my country is not on the list.

    Amazingly, no Asian country in this list too... I thought people in Asian countries are more addicted to these social networking sites..
    During my engineering days, there were many friends of mine who use to be online on orkut 24x7 Days ..heavily engaged day & night..they use to devote more time to orkut & other such social networking sites than their studies..Interestingly still they became engineers today..!!:D

    This is really amazing and it's a good info, but how can not US be the first, because it's really known of its social network sites and users. This is one thing. The other fascination is how can Russia be the first, but maybe because after all they hang out on the internet more (maybe) who knows?
    However, all other are somehow predicted except for Mexico. Moreover, my country, unfortunately not from the top ten, but maybe one day it will.
