This time, we have a contest between social-networking websites:
Scale is based on the average worldwide traffic of facebook in all years.
First of all, mid-2004 is when the first, Orkut, appeared.

I am quite surprised at the insignificance of LinkedIn. For a more detailed and complete overview of social-networking sites around the world, see the Royal blog.
