Sydney: Google is the clear winner when it comes to popularity and usage across the world as revealed by an interesting map made by Oxford Internet Institute researchers.
The map is made by Mark Graham and Stefano De Stabbata, and shows that the search engine giant rules in Australia, the US, and most of Europe and South East Asia, followed close by China's Baidu search engine.
According to news.com.au, the researchers said that the map shows that it is the very beginning of the Age of Internet Empires, and the territories carved out now will have important implications in the future.
The map, which is weighted by internet population, shows that social media giant Facebook is the most visited in North Africa, Mexico, much of South America and parts of the Middle East.
Meanwhile, Yahoo is shown dominating Japan followed by Russia's Yandex, which is most visited website in the country.
