According to the ratings of the TNS portal in July 2013, VKontakte became the most popular social network in Russia, which is visited by more than 38 million users per day, at the same time, Odnoklassniki, according to this study, are visited by 8 million less. Nevertheless, users consider the best social network to which they are more accustomed, and since there are a lot of people on both VK and Odnoklassniki, the opinions of which site are better divided approximately equally.
History of Odnoklassniki and VKontakte creation
The social network Odnoklassniki began its work in 2006 and literally in a matter of weeks began to gain tremendous popularity among Runet users.
Literally six months later, the VKontakte project was launched, which was initially targeted at a youth audience. The popularity of this social network began to rapidly gain momentum and quickly overtook Odnoklassniki in attendance. Within a year, there were approximately two times more registered users on VKontakte than on Odnoklassniki. Such popularity was due, first of all, to the fact that paid registration was introduced on Odnoklassniki at that time, which users did not like very much.
If you decide to revise the page of every VKontakte user, you will need at least a thousand years!
In 2010, losing to VKontakte in terms of the number of users by 15 million people, Odnoklassniki canceled paid registration, which allows them to attract many new users.
Since then, there has been a continuous competition between these two mega-popular social networks. In a fast-paced race, VKontakte and Odnoklassniki are taking the lead, introducing all kinds of new items on their services, which undoubtedly benefits ordinary users of social networks. Websites are constantly evolving and becoming more interesting from year to year.
So which social network is better?
Watching movies and listening to music has become a kind of "visiting card" of VKontakte. The ability to add audio and video files made this site the most convenient in this regard; similar functions were added to Odnoklassniki much later.
Search engines of the world Internet process the request "Vkontakte" more than 4 billion per month
Copied from Facebook, the VKontakte interface looks rather modest, relatively cheerful orange Odnoklassniki design.
A large number of people over 50 are registered on Odnoklassniki, meanwhile, when VKontakte remained a social network aimed at younger people.
Both VKontakte and Odnoklassniki are upset with a large amount of spam and frequent hacking of user pages.
It is impossible to clearly determine which of the two networks is better. We can only say with confidence that there are more users under 25 on VKontakte, and older people fell in love with Odnoklassniki.
Ultimately, everyone decides for himself what he likes best. You can register both there and there, and in which social network you will spend more time, it will become clear only later.
