Nairaland - Nigeria's forum site is visited 31.97 million times per month, on average and it is the 9th most-visited site in country with 2.58 million with global ranking of 1,521.

This is according to SimilarWeb which gives near accurate site statistics.

Niaraland which was founded in 2005 by a young developer, Seun Osewa  has growth potentials and currently has about 2.58 millions registered users. 

Niaraland therefore has huge potential of becoming Nigeria’s, if not regional social network by introducing other products like instant messaging, thereby allowing users to directly connect with one another in private space on the platform. In the statistics provided by SimilarWeb, Narialand has most of its users from Nigeria with 67.92% followed by USA with 9.87%. Three other top users are UK, Canada, Ghana.

This feat was achieved in the absence of government supporting policies. 

There are pessimists who argue that Africa could never produce globally relevant internet companies because of inadequate supply of talents especially, engineering. China too never had sufficient talent or entrepreneurial experience at the time technological innovations started in that country. Its pioneer internet companies were built by postgraduate students at American universities who returned home to unashamedly copy and paste Silicon Valley innovation and transfer knowledge to their of employees.

Narialand and its founded should should to integrate social networking capabilities on the site, because the opportunity has presented itself.
