The globalization of the internet …
- Google: 890mm worldwide visitors, 745mm non US – 84% non US
- Facebook: 471mm worldwide visitors, 370mm non US – 78% non US
- Twitter: 74mm worldwide users, 53mm non US – 72% non US
The BRIC countries are going to be the most important markets going forwards…. now is the time to invest in Internet properties in India/China etc. Properties with an Indian focus like say Rediff.com are going to be increasingly important, possibly more important than Facebook and Twitter in the coming decade.
