One of the sources of information that I do not miss to be able to see graphs and summaries of current events in the world of technology is the twitter account @chartoftheday, where they have published a graph showing the countries in which Facebook does not dominate the market.
As you can see, in India and Brazil Orkut dominates, by far; Although it seems that in Rsia Facebook, which already reaches 43.9% of the world population, it does not have it easy either.
Google recently showed a map with requests for blocking or deletion of information made by different governments around the world.
On the map we could see that Brazil also stood out for being one of the main countries that uses the law to ask Google to remove content of various types (in fact it is normal in Brazil to know cases of people who denounce Google because someone insults them in Orkut).
Some Internet connection centers on the streets (Lan Houses or phone booths) have MSN and ORKUT highlighted on the door, making clear the availability of the two preferred tools of an extremely high percentage of Brazilians.
I don’t know how things will be in India, but in Brazil Facebook has a long way to go …
