This up to date, June 2011 map of the worlds most popular social networks shows a sweeping growth of blue… you guessed it: Facebook. Since creator Vincenzo Cosenza’s initial June 2009 map, network after network have fallen to Mark Zuckerburg’s social giant. Based on data from Alexa and Google Trends for Websites these maps reflect the current domination by Facebook in 119 of the 134 countries analyzed. Check out the animated image below for a play by play of social network history.

Vincenzo Cosenza graduated from Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa, Italy with degrees in Economics and Innovation Management. Since 2007 he has worked for Digital PR.
