Top 20 Most Popular Social Networking Websites

Here are the 20 Most Popular Social Networking Websites ranked by a combination of Inbound Links and Alexa Rank. I regularly check out http://www.ebizmba.com for stats and top 10’s etc.

I wasn’t surprised that Facebook was top, however I was surprised that Orkut (Google Facebook) was so far down the table. Personally I can’t stomach MySpace and steer well clear of it, but who’d a thunk that Classmates was so high? I must admit that even though I spend a lot of time on the net, I had never heard of Ning, so there ya go, you learn something new every day.
