MySpace And Facebook: No Traffic In Asia

comScore came out with a little study on the geographic spread of the users of social networking sites. Perhaps the most striking point is that the two largest properties, MySpace (NWS) and Facebook, have relatively few visitors in Asia.

MySpace had over 114 million unique visitors in June, up 72% over the course of a year.

Facebook had over 52 million uniques up a fairly astonishing 270%.

But, to Asia. Only 8% of MySpace’s viisitors and 7% of Facebook’s users are from Asia. Given the importance of the region, those number are very light

Smaller social network Friendster has 88% of its visitors in Asia. Maybe Baidu will buy them.
