I just came across this map of the global Social Network sites showing which website dominates each country in the world. Of course there are many users of various networks in each country, but this is an interesting look at the most used networks around the world. Apparently MySpace is still dominating the US and Hi-5 is all-over Mexico and Central America.

What Social Network site do you use? Do you use more than one? I am on Facebook for social relations and LinkedIn and Xing for business-related networking. Though as one gets busy it is difficult to keep up with all the updates on any given site, including reading others blogs. Speaking of which … if you want an easy way to keep up with this blog, just sign up for email updates of new posts (on the right-hand column, at the bottom). Yes, it is a shameless plug, I know.
Colombians "Networking" over Arepas instead of Facebook

Colombians "Networking" over Arepas instead of Facebook

As I have just been in Colombia, I thought it interested to hear, and see, that they are incredible Facebook users. Apparently people are on the site so much, sharing so much personal information, that the government has started issuing warnings against sharing too much info so as to limit the potential risks for kidnappings and identity-based crimes! Crazy. Maybe it is safer to “network” in person over some hot, delicious arepas instead of online.
