40 Most Popular Social Networking Sites of the World

"Social networking" has been around forever. It's the simple act of expanding the number of people you know by meeting your friends' friends, their friends' friends and so on. In fact, many of us today use Twitter and Facebook to promote our existing and upcoming businesses. And people looking to connect with other business-associated contacts usually move to sites like LinkedIn, but one need to understand that social media is beyond Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Blogs. After observing and running an analysis on hundreds of Social Networking sites I have listed down 40 most popular social networks across countries.

1. Facebook: To access Facebook.com, you must create an account on the site which is free. Facebook's terms of use state that members must be at least 13 years old with valid email ID’s. After updating you're details, your Facebook profile is generated. Using Facebook.com you can:

o Browse and join networks, which are organized into four categories: regions, colleges, workplaces and high schools.
o Pull contacts from a Web-based e-mail account, into Facebook.com.
o Find friends in several ways, including search engine to look for a specific person and lot more.
o Facebook has recently crossed 500 million users and is the most popular Social Networking site of the world.

2. MySpace: On MySpace, your social network starts growing from the first day. When you join MySpace, the first step is to create a profile. You then, invite friends to join there and search for your friends on already profiled on MySpace these friends become your initial Friend Space. Once the friendship is confirmed all the people in your friends' Friend Space become part of your network. In that sense, everyone on MySpace is in your Extended Network. As part of terms of MySpace, the user must be at least 14 years old to register.

3. Twitter: Twitter is a very simple service that is rapidly becoming one of the most talked-about social networking service providers. When you have a Twitter account, you can use the service to post and receive messages to a network of contacts, as opposed to send bulk email messages. You can build your network of contacts, and invite others to receive your Tweets, and can follow other members' posts. Twitter makes it easy to opt into or out of networks. Additionally, you can choose to stop following a specific person’s feed.

4. LinkedIn: LinkedIn is an online social network for business professionals, which is designed specifically for professional networking, to help them find a job, discover sales leads, connect with potential business partners. Unlike most of the other social networks, LinkedIn does not focus on making friends or sharing media like photos, videos and music. To start using LinkedIn you need to register and create a profile page. To register to LinkedIn, you need to provide personal information. You can update the profile with your education and job details and a summary. Additionally, you can also give and receive recommendations from co-workers and bosses. There are more than 75 million professionals registered on LinkedIn.

5. Bebo: In the United Kingdom, Bebo is the second best social network. Bebo allows users to create social networking profiles for free. It offers many of the same features as other social networking sites. You can register a free account with Bebo and upload photos, videos and information. The site lets you connect with old friends and make new ones using a unique user interface. The site boasts users from more than a dozen countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada, Poland, France and Germany.

6. Friendster: Friendster was one of the first Web sites to bring it into mass culture. It was designed as a place to connect with friends, family, colleagues and new friends over the Internet. However, it went beyond just a one-way communication. Using Friendster, you can connect with friends and family, meet new people through the connections you already have, find people with similar interests, backgrounds or geographical locations, join groups by activity, school or interest, interact through message posts, games, blogs and application sharing, and share your details with the Internet community.

7. Hi5: Hi5 shares many similarities with many social network sites; however, it introduces some twists that make it worthwhile for people who love trying out new and interesting online communities. However, it is not one of the popular sites in the United States. This was a strategic move from the founder, therefore, Hi5 claims around 60 million members from more than 200 countries other than the US. One of the site's biggest transformations is the addition of many entertainment options, including games.

8. Habbo: The Habbo online community is inhabited by pixelated, cartoon-character alter egos. You can meet others in public rooms (nightclubs, restaurants, shops) and create private rooms for selected friends. Habbo employees heavily moderate the site, catering to its solid teen user base. Most of the users of Habbo are between the age group of 13 – 18 years. Although, a major part of the users are from the U.S., Habbo social networks is very popular in places like the United Kingdom, Japan, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Finland and more.

9. NING: Ning is the leading online platform for the world's organizers, activists and influencers to create social experiences that inspire action. It helps you create a safe and secure place online for like-minded people. Ning takes the idea of groups to a whole new level. The ability to create your own community makes Ning a great home away from home for organizations and groups looking to fill the social void.

10. Classmates: Classmates.com is different from most social networks, in the sense that most of its features are available to premium member. The price for premium members depends on the length of the agreement – shorter term results in a higher cost per month. Classmates.com is primarily used to reconnect with old classmates. The site features a search engine that lets you view other people who went to the same school you attended. Creating a basic Classmates.com profile is free and easy. However, most of the advanced features in Classmates.com are only available to paid users.

11. Tagged: Tagged is a blend of social networking features that MySpace and Facebook users will find very familiar.

Good post, but Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki are notably absent from your list, both are wildly popular in Russian speaking countries. Vkontakte has about 90 million users, and completely dwarfs Facebook in the CIS block.

Great to see something that's not the usual US/UK centric viewpoint though - there's definitely much more to the global Social Media landscape than Facebook and Twitter :-)

Posted on October 19th 2011 at 11:44AM

Era isso mesmo que eu ia comentar

Cade o Vkontakte?

Muitos brasileiros já estão usando o site

E ele não aparece nem entre os 40?

Sendo que em todos os sites apontam o vkontakte como o 27 colocado no mundo

Thank you. I am glad you liked this post. I will take your feedback into consideration. And yes, the Social Media Network does not limit to Facebook and Twitter alone :)

Posted on October 12th 2010 at 7:40AM

Yes, there are certainly plenty of genuine Facebook alternatives out there, this website http://www.no1social.com lists social networking websites based on their global Alexa ranking (though it only shows top 10 and it is interesting that it differs slightly from the content shown here)

Hello, Thanks for your feedback. Just had to say the number of visitors to a site doesn't define the rankings :) 

Posted on October 12th 2010 at 2:04PM

Some pretty interesting groups like the one where you animate yourself and socialize in nightclubs?

Posted on December 7th 2010 at 2:16PM

Great information!  I was wondering how I could promote my site to other areas of the world.

Posted on February 7th 2011 at 3:10AM

Hi,

I am surprised why have u listed Orkut so low in the rankings?!?! I know that Orkut has become less popular but still it should not be placed so low. As u said - no of users does not define the rankings, then what are the other criterias  that define a particular site as "popular", or may be u shud change the name of this survey then.

Cheers!!

 

Posted on March 2nd 2011 at 3:54AM

It is not only illogical but also laughable to determine the ranking of a social networkwithout considering the number of visitors.

Posted on March 2nd 2011 at 8:13AM
Hi looks cool and nice Where should i start reading? thanks
Posted on April 25th 2011 at 9:12AM

Where's QQ?! It has hundreds of millions of users ( 300 million in 2007, with 615 million live accounts currently registed). It dominates social networking in China. Why the omission?

Posted on May 5th 2011 at 2:00AM

A very usuful list - helped me a lot, when I needed to find most popular social networks.

Especially for description of their orientation - it takes hours and sometimes days to understand what is happening over this network and your description is very helpful. Thanks a lot.

Posted on May 18th 2011 at 5:20AM

I need to find the top social networking sites in the following countries/areas:

UK, USA, SCANDINAVIA, ITALY, GERMANY, KOREA,  POLAND, CEE, FRANCE, IBERIA. Where would be a good place to look for this kind of information?

Thanks,

soravjain - I like Sound Swift.com.  It is a music entertainment networking site similar to Craig's List, Facebook, Youtube and My Space, Skpe all rolled into one site.

 

Also how do I upload my photo?

Posted on August 21st 2011 at 1:04AM

Thanks a lot for the complete list. I really appreciate your effort to give a brief description beside the listing. It will help people to find the exact social networking they are looking for.

Can you post an article listing the social networking based on Geographical location and popularity among a region? That would be a great article for people in my opinion.

I love the new up and coming social networking site ‘Gozzipp’, it has special offers and options that other sites don’t have. Plus lots of useful tools all in the one site.

 

I've been slowly working my way around it, it has some gret help guides to explain certain areas if you are unsure of what it contains.

What does job search actually mean? It is the art of finding jobs for employment. It is done at a time when an individual is looking for a job after education or is not happy with his current job.  Everyone wants to grow, thereforea person is constantly on the questof a better opportunity.

 

Finding a job is a very complicated andlengthy process. No one knows how long it will take to find a good job.  If you are not getting a job that interests you, then you should start availingyourself of some short-term jobs to gain experience.

 

There are many tips, whichcan help an individual finding a good job conveniently. They include:

  • Choose job sites very carefully because there are millions of sites which post jobs. Therefore one should be selective about carefully selecting an authentic website for your job application. There are many sites such as OLX, Indeed and roze.com, wiseguysjobs.com, they are reliable sites. 
  • While an individual is finding a job, use keywordsbecause it will make your research easy.
  • While looking for a job through sites like OLX, you must always givea zip code and the area you belong to so that the site searches all the jobs in your territory of residence.
  • You must always save your job searches to get emails alerts.
  • You should only apply to those jobs that match your education. Big companies want candidates who have skills and who have experience.  If these two criteriaare lacking, then the resume will be rejected. 
  • These sites sometimes have scams. One should be conscious because no job can give effortless money.
  • You should write a good cover letter that shows that the candidate is very attractive in the job.  In the cover letter, try to impress the company with your skills and degree.
  • Candidates should also post resumes on different company’s websites so that those companies approach you directly. Be careful because anyone can see that posted resume.
  • Other than that, check your resume for spelling and grammatical mistakes. Make your resume in a proper way. Keep your resume updated.
  • When an individual knows that he/she has applied to a particular firm, than research is very important. Try to learn what the company is doing. Research online about the company that what its reputation is.
  • If there is an interview with the company, then before going for the interview, find out who is going to interview you.  Do a little research on that person. If you know anyone in thecompany,or anyoneelse who is applying in, then ask that person first for advice.
  • If the company is ready to hire you, then your consideration must be the salary. Most companies discuss salary package with the candidate and you can negotiate.  If the company wants to hire you, they will consider your demands.

 

There are many different ways through which you can find a job.  Advertisement in the newspaper is one of the easiest ways to find a job without effort.  Internet is another advanced way to find a job. There are even agencies that help you to find a job that takes time and money both, but it is worth utilizing.

Excellent list of social networks. It is amazing to know that every week a new social network launches and takes over an entire market online. So many new and engaging ideas are being created now.

I'm surprised that http://www.subbmitt.com is not listed. It is a social news site that is cool because all articles you post make the front page as long as they are legitimate articles. Also, you don't need an account to post articles or to comment. The best part is that you don't get blocked if you want to comment on multiple articles like you do on Reddit. Subbmitt.com is a nice site that I find myself using more and more.

Thanks very much for this post.  I am new to internet marketing and always looking to learn more.  I have posted a link to this article on my website, which is a website for people new to the world of IM, just like me.  Kind of like from one newbie to another.  Anyway, I'm researching a new social media site in terms of it's ability to bring in more traffic to my website and if it pans out, I will share that with everyone.

Thanks again,

Norma

A new social network is Friendburst which lets you customize your profiles to a greater degree then most social networks out there with html and css. Many people are starting to gravitate towards the smaller social networks where they can really connect better and meet new people then the larger corporate networks that limit your experiences.

Wow! Sorav, you really gave your best in this post and I appreciate that! Great to see all the information. However if you are willing to post on 50+ high PR social sites within a few seconds than i recommend you to go with vKonnect.com, as it is known to be a social networking engine that allows you to post your desired content to all these social sites and the best thing is that this service is absolutely free! They won't even charge you a single penny for that! All you have to do is to Sign Up, and that's it! :)

hello,

Skyrock, the most important social network in France, is essentially used by teenagers : not by adults who prefering "copaindavant" or professional networks like viadeo ou linkedin. And recently I have discover the DRUPAL network (with the CMS Drupal ) , which is open for everybody ( exemple : http://gold.drupalgardens.com/blog ), Tumblr of course  ( http://poolj.tumblr.com ) and a network on games and teaching musicmindgames ... A lot of networks like these have an existence in the social web

I wonder if social signals overtake the importance of links in terms of getting exposed in google serps. While google may be doing it right with fighting spam and kill sites that put too much effort into agressive link building social profile sites can be manipulated easily - we often hear about selling +1's and likes. What google search quality team says about future trends is building quality comeplling content and sharing with the target audience. We have just redesigned our gaming website and wonder if general audience like it or not. Please pay a visit to livecasinodirect.com portal to make any judgement. Any feedback via likes, g+ or pinterest would be welcome.
