Which App dominates what country?

As you might expect, Facebook dominates the whole world by far. Even the Asian outlier countries like Japan and South Korea are quite in line with the rest of the world – here too, Facebook is in first place.
Now to the few actual countries that are an exception to the Facebook domination:
China, which is dominated by QZone.
The East is being served by VKontakte (ВКонтакте) and Odnoklassniki.

Facebook dominates all. 

Which App is Second?

The second most used Social Networking App around the world is Instagram – widely spread. 
It is followed by Reddit, Twitter and Odnoklassniki. 

Which App has the most downloads?

The question which App is the best, meaning which App is top downloaded and therefore has the most users, is easily answered.  As you can already see from the world ranking, Facebook is the undisputed leader in Social Networks – also in terms of the number of Google Play Store Downloads.
With over +5 billion downloads, it is the one and only leader.
Odnoklassniki and VKontakte each could sell more than +100 million Apps.
And although Instagram can be found on more than +1 billion smartphones, it can still only establish itself as the Social Networking favorite in Iran.

Again Facebook is #1
