In our previous study we considered about the dominance of Asia-Pacific users on Social Media globally. The dominance is due to the rising usage of Social networking websites like Qzone (China), Sina weibo (China) and Facebook in Asia. Asian countries like China, Japan, India, Philippines are having huge number of Social Networking users for different social networking sites.
A recent infographic, released by wearesocial, highlights the current situation and position of various social networking sites active in whole Asia region.
