Facebook is Fastest Growing Social Network in Europe
A new report by comScore on social networking in Europe indicates Facebook is also experiencing rapid growth abroad. Total unique visitors to the site rose 422% from July 06-July ‘07 to 10.8 million. Meanwhile, MySpace remained Europe’s most visited social network, with comScore reporting 25.1M visitors in July, up 24% over the same period.
While on the whole Facebook is clearly exploding in Europe, comScore did note the company’s troubles in Germany, where it doesn’t even place in the top ten. According to the report Facebook had only 177,000 visitors to the German version of the site in July, leaving it far behind leaders MySpace (3.6M visitors) and Facebook clone StudiVZ.
