I could find a geography exchange so posted here. I am having tough time recognizing which one is the site in yellow(left of brown) that has its own social network. Is it moldova?

Why did this small country get its own social network instead of "piggybacking" on one of the larger ones used in other countries, such as Facebook, which covers most of the world, or one of the networks in the former Soviet Union, of which it was once a part?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:

  • "Questions on social sciences other than History are off-topic here, unless they also involve history in some fashion. While ethics, archaeology, etc. are all connected to history, each field has their own experts who are better equipped to answer such questions." – Eugene Seidel, American Luke, Kobunite
  • "Requests for trivia or basic historical facts are off-topic if they can be easily answered by looking up the relevant topic on Wikipedia. We're trying to complement common historical references, not duplicate them." – Gwenn, fortytwo
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

First, geography and history are two different studies (although somewhat interconnected). Second, a simple Google search or Wikipedia check solves this problem. –  American Luke Jul 14 '13 at 17:57

Expanded the question to ask why the country got its own social network. It's now more of a history question than before. –  Tom Au Jul 15 '13 at 18:38
Odnoklassniki is a russian social network. Three main social networks in Russia - VKontakte (russian for "In Contact"), Odnoklassniki ("Classmates") and Moy Mir ("My World") –  spyder Jul 17 '13 at 9:55
