Opera: State of the Mobile Web for December

Opera released its December "State of the Mobile Web" report, which is based on user behavior from its installed base of Opera Mobile/Mini users globally. The latest report focuses in some depth on Southeast Asia. But there's also interesting full year data on social network site visits.

I'll focus and present the data from the US, UK and Chinese markets. That's followed by the full-year, fastest-growing social sites (among Opera users). I posted about the Opera November data here, for comparison.

 Again, compare the GroundTruth top sites in the US (presumably from a mix of feature phones and smartphones).

Presumably we won't be seeing Google on the list immediately above in the near future as the company pulls its Chinese search engine (unless the Chinese government relents and allows Google to operate without censorship, which it won't do). 

Below are the global, fastest growing social networks for 2009 among Opera Mini/Mobile users:
