Your company’s favorite “intranet” is a social network site?

Social network popularity around the world by Pingdom is very interesting.

Some interesting observations before we get started
While we were collecting the data we noted several interesting, and often surprising, pieces of information. Here are some of the more interesting tidbits:

Facebook is most popular in Turkey and Canada.
Friendster and Imeem are most popular in the Philippines.
LinkedIn is most popular in India.
Twitter is most popular in Japan.
LiveJournal is more popular in Russia than it is in the United States.
Orkut is more popular in Iran (10th country popularity-wise) than it is in the United States.
MySpace is the only social network which is most popular in the United States.
MySpace, LinkedIn, LiveJournal, Xanga, and Twitter are the only social networks in this survey which have the United States in their top five countries, popularity-wise. That is just five out of twelve.

What does it says exactly? Hmmm. But if I were the IT Manager, I’d (1) be pissed off and aghast, (2) figuring out exactly what I need to do to get something like this going in my organization!

Oh… wait…

Disclaimer: I’m not a customer of Pingdom, nor do I use their tools. But, they do seem pretty cool.
