Facebook spent 2011 running roughshod over Orkut and is now the No. 1 social networking site in Brazil, according to new comScore data.
The Palo Alto, CA-based digital giant increased its Brazilian users by 192 percent year over year, comScore says, nearly tripling its raw number from approximately 12.3 million to 36 million. Google-owned Orkut, on the other hand, went from 32.6 million to 34.4 million when comparing comScore data from the last two Decembers.
