Web 2.0 different visions over the world
A huge survey of more than 50,000 social platforms users “mapped by country how people are sharing information about themselves online“.
Asian users are more engaged with the social web then users in the West. Up to 45% of Asian internet users blog (to compare with the 15% in the U.S.): “blogging is a vehicle for keeping in touch with family and friends“.
European, North american and Australian users are more active than Eastern users when it comes to photo sharing and managing a social-network profile, but they’re less active for microblogging.
