Facebook has passed the tipping point in Japan
In entering Japan, Facebook joins a competitive market where mainstream services such as Mixi, Ameba, Gree and Mobage are dominant. However, its range of services, speed, activity stream and vitality of content has taken it passed the local sites and Japanese users are now joining Facebook in record numbers.
Social media monitoring site Socialbakers.com, as well as Facebook itself, list over 3 million members in Japan and the number is growing at 100,000+ per month.
Some of the latest Facebook news in the Japanese press:
