Facebook Overtakes Orkut in Brazil

Orkut was transferred to Google Brazil in 2008, as most of its members are from Brazil, which has the fifth largest social networking population in the world. Until 2011, Orkut was the most popular social network in Brazil; Facebook now has more Brazilian users than Orkut. Experts suggest Facebook has grown nearly 200% each year since its release, though growth in Brazil has been sluggish up to now. While Google+ has shown some growth in the region, it also shows a lot of overlap with Orkut users.
