however, and now with a year-on-year (y-o-y)
comparison, we see that both Pinterest and Tumblr have
grown more than any other social platform between Q2
2012 and Q2 2013, by 88% and 74% respectively.

The engagement rate of active users to account holders decreased for all top 5 social networks compared with Q1 2013. Despite that, Facebook still remains
the leader in engaging its audience with 62% of active account holders. The gap between engagement of Google+ and Twitter has widened over the past
quarter with microblog’s account holders being 10% more likely to use it actively than those who signed up to Google+. The two main emerging platforms
proved to be equally engaging in Q2 2013.

Google+ is catching Facebook
While Facebook still leads in terms of active usage in every region around the world, Google+ has made significant inroads and its penetration among
the internet population in APAC is only 8 percentage points behind that of Facebook. This is due to high usage of country-specific social networks such
as Sina Weibo in China, which with its user base of over 300 millions active members is currently the 4 th largest platform in the world (measured across
markets surveyed by GWI). While Facebook does have 21% penetration in China, the local platform are far more popular because they are much more
easily accessible.
