  • 42. Facebook rules the social media space, but ishaving a hard time in China & Japan.Facebook rules, at least in Europe, US and Australia. No other networkreaches the 96% awareness and 62% usage level of Facebook. If wetake a look at both awareness and membership, Twitter and MySpaceare number two and three social media in Europe.Given the fact that LinkedIn is a professional network, it is worthpointing out that this network ranks fourth, both in terms of awarenessand membership.On European level, Vkontakte (a Facebook look-alike) is a strongnetwork in Russia and Ukraine. In a broader perspective, Qzone(China) and Orkut (Brazil, India) are network sites to take into account.Facebook has lower penetration rates in China and Japan.

  • 60. The Twitter Paradox: high awareness versuslow usage. What’s next?Compared to Facebook, Twitter is still a pretty small networkof people. Twitter is well known, but has not reached thepenetration level of Facebook yet. Future adoption looksgood, but there is still a long way to go.Facebook and Twitter are a perfect couple, both sites servedifferent needs. When people join Twitter, their Facebookusage does not decrease. Twitter users are typically usingmore social media than non Twitter users.
