StudiVZ who? Facebook reigns supreme in Germany
The above chart says it all. After battling it out with local clone StudiVZ and the other social networks in the VZ networks group, Facebook has reigned supreme. Produced by Fitton & Maass Consulting, it shows that the U.S. social network has 64.4% of the market based on users who login at least once per week. StudiVZ claims just over 12% while the group as a whole sits at 32.7%. Thus Facebook continues to eat away at its local competitor’s market share. This, as Fitton & Maass points out, despite a German government minister warning the public not to use Facebook based on privacy concerns.
