Social Media Popular in Canada's Websites

Social media seems to getting more and more popular, but to prove it I did a little study. Below is a list of the top one hundred websites accessed within Canada, according to web traffic firm Alexa (accessed June 2008). From this list, I performed a quick review to discover if social media (e.g. blogs, user generated content, wikis, social networking, social bookmarking, message boards, etc.) was occurring on this site. Social media was prominent in 45 of the 100 sites. The total is probably higher as I counted the sites not in English or French as a no, as I couldn't tell what was happening on the site.

As this study shows, social media for Canadian's websites has undoubtedly arrived. Whether all these sites should be offering social media is another story...
