The German Social Networking Landscape
In December 2012, 46.4 million German internet users accessed a social networking site from a computer at least once during the month. The German Press Agency (DPA) recently published a snapshot of the social networking landscape in Germany using comScore MMX data and unsurprisingly, Facebook captures the majority of users with an audience of 38.6 million unique visitors.
Google Plus is in second position with 5.6 million unique visitors and Xing is a close third with 4.2 million users. Twitter is 5th in the rankings with 3.1 million German users and LinkedIn comes in 8th place with an audience of 2.7 million.
