Skype, still the world’s biggest social network


My colleague Jeremy Wagstaff wrote an interesting piece on Skype and highlighted that the service is still the world’s biggest social network! [To be honest, I was also not aware about this fact!]

We talk about Facebook, twitter, MySpace and Friendster as the big social networks but we keep forgetting one that is far bigger than that: Skype. This from a Bloomberg piece on Skype’s vacillating fortunes:

Skype has soared in popularity since it started in 2003 and has about 548 million users worldwide—more than Facebook, MySpace and Twitter combined.
