World Map of Social Media

NCE Social Media

Outside of Russia and most of Asia, Facebook (the blue countries) is now the main player. I recently came across a world map of social media on the Vincos Blog. I really enjoy their post because it shows you the gradual change in social networks in different parts of the world.

Developer Trubnikov: Russia classifies beer as alcoholic. Only in Russia would anything less than 10% be called food. :). One of my favorite, periodic events during the morning commute is when I catch Nina Totenberg’s recap of the previous day’s Supreme Court proceedings. I love how she says each Justice’s name and then their comments. Maybe I just love Nina Totenberg. Regardless, today I offer you my Toten-version of the Buzz at Beaconfire on Russian beer.
