Survey Says the Philippines is the Social Networking Capital of the World

Facebook is the top social networking site, this no one can deny anymore. Almost everyone I know has a Facebook account and has used the networking site one way or another.  It has been a long time since the time Friendster was the top networking site in the Philippines.  Friendster is however unpolished compared to Facebook and was simply not on the same level as the latter in terms of features.  That’s why Friendster closed down and was revived but no longer as a social networking site but as a gaming site.  The Philippines is considered as the social networking capital of the world, and much of that is owed to the popularity of Facebook and Twitter in the Philippines.

Using data from analytics firm comScore24/7 Wall St. came out with a list of countries where Facebook dominates the online market.  Of the ten countries that topped the list, Philippines came out number one, affirming its status as the Social Networking Capital of the World.
