VKontakte is a Russian social network service popular in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus. VK offers a striking similarity in design and functionality to its US rival Facebook, and as such has been described as a "Facebook clone." Like Facebook, VK allows users to message contacts publicly or privately, create groups and events, share and tag images and video, and play browser-based games. One distinction of VK is its integration with torrent filesharing technology which allows users to share larger files.
As of February 2011, VK has around 135 million accounts, but has acknowledged that it has a major spam problem, and no longer advertises user numbers on its homepage. VKontakte is ranked 43 in Alexa's global Top 500 sites and is the fifth most visited website in Russia. In May 2011 vkontakte.ru and vk.com were visited by 23.6 million and 4.9 million people from Russia aged 12-54.
In English, В Контакте or V Kontákte translates as "In Contact" or "In Touch".
