Facebook, aiming for global domination, is gaining quickly in Asia

Can Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg create the first truly dominant global social network? It's a big ambition, but it's looking less implausible all the time. Previously, social networks were strong in one region primarily or in several, but never globally. Friendster couldn't catch on in Europe or South America. MySpace was much weaker in Asia than in the U.S.

Facebook, however, is well on its way to establishing dominance in several parts of the world. Already very strong in North America and Europe, Zuckerberg (pictured) looks set to take Asia, too.
