Facebook surpasses Orkut in Brazil

This is big news. Orkut is not any more the largest social network in Brazil, as Facebook has for the first time become the top one. According to ComScore, in December 2011, Facebook attracted 36.1 million visitors versus 34.4 million for Orkut.

Facebook increased 192% since December 2010, while Orkut only grew 5% in the same period of time. This change leaves China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Holland and Russia as the only markets in which Facebook is not the largest social network. India and Poland are already dominated by Facebook.
