100 Most Socially Networked Cities…NYC Not Where You Would Think

#53 New York?? Not even in the top 50 damn….but this is according to Men’sHealth who took the challenge of ranking the top 100 most socially networked cities in order for all to see. Here’s how they broke it down.

It appears to be a fair and scientifically valid procedure. First, Men’sHealth figured out each city’s LinkedIn andFacebook users per capita, and then tapped the NetProspexmarketing database to figure out each location’s amount of overall Twitter usage.

Not stopping there, the next step was to consult online ad network Chitika to quantify traffic from MySpace,FriendsterReddit and Digg, and finally, SimplyMap helped determine the percentage of households using chat rooms and blogs.

The list below is as much a study of how to find this information as it is a valid assessment of which city has the bragging rights to calling itself The Capital of Social Networking. Speaking of capital, who knew our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., would be at the top of the list, or that Milwaukee (#45), the location ofMashable’s humble Midwest Test Facility, would rate higher than the mighty New York City (#53), home ofMashable HQ? I’m also surprised Boulder, CO isn’t in the mix (unless counted as Denver) since it is such a college town and home to a lot of online businesses.

See how your city ranks, and feel free to trash-talk those other lesser bergs (Except for my NYC) especially Detroit damn Shady’s gotta talk to his hometown and get them online.
