Using Social Network Sites (SNS) as an information source has drawn the attention of the researchers for a while now. There has been many works that analyzed the types and topics of questions people ask in these networks and why. Topics like what motivate people to answer such queries, how to integrate the traditional search engines and SNS together are also well investigated. In this paper, we focus on a relevant but different issue - how SNS search varies in developed and developing regions of the world and why. With established statistics of Internet usage, e-Governance, and our experimental data collection, we have tried to emphasize the differences among them and provided insight that one might require to consider while developing any application for SNS based searching.
