Facebook is on its way to global domination, but there are still seven major markets where it is not the leading social network, according to a new report from comScore.We’ve included charts showing how Facebook compares to its rivals in these markets.

Before you click through to take a look, here are some stunning stats on Facebook’s reach from comScore: In October of last year, Facebook reached 55% of the world’s online audience, accounted for 3 of every 4 minutes spent social networking, and accounted for 1 of every 7 minutes on the web.

It’s the number one social network in 33 out of the 40 markets comScore tracks. Here’s a look at those seven other markets …

In Brazil, Orkut is still king ... for now. Facebook is closing the gap.

In Japan, Twitter has many more users, but time spent on Facebook is bigger

Facebook is about to be the biggest social network in Poland, but it's not there yet

It doesn't look like Facebook is going to win Russia over any time soon

It's neck and neck in South Korea

Facebook is losing in Vietnam, too. comScore just started measuring Vietnam, so it doesn't have trend data available. Weirdly enough, Zuckerberg just spent Christmas in Vietnam.

It's nowhere in China, because China isn't an open society

And here's a look at Facebook's rise through the years

Pretty soon, you'll be able to invest in Facebook
