Social Networking Going Global

It has been interesting watching the evolution of social networks here in the U.S.  A few years ago sites like Facebook and MySpace wanted little to do with international users and analysts pointed to Friendster as a miserable failure because of the huge number of users outside of the U.S.  What was most important then was U.S. advertising dollars, which meant traffic from the U.S. was what mattered most.

Then came News Corp’s acquisition of MySpace and its international charge into countries such as China.  It seemed they realized that their product could be used worldwide and expansion beyond the U.S. was a tremendous opportunity.

Over the past year Facebook has gotten into the international game and is touting its growth in other countries.  We’re now watching a race to grab customers outside of the U.S.

USA Today recently posted an article about the global expansion of social networks as well.  Things are heating up.

As one of the few social networks concentrating solely on the international market, we’ve recognized the huge potential of users around the world from Day 1.  And while other social networks seem to be focusing their international efforts on establishing country-specific sites, Ebaby! has a rare opportunity to have one site for everyone, effectively connecting the world.

Stay tuned for more activity in the social networking space as our world gets smaller and smaller.
