Facebook Edges Google In Site Visits

Tuesday Mar 16th 2010 by Datamation.com Staff

The social networking giant becomes the most visited site in the U.S.

InformationWeek: According to the latest statistics from Hitwise, more people in the U.S. visited Facebook than Google last week. Although the social networking site has held the top spot on several single days before, this is the first time it took the title for an entire week.

"This development represents a major win for Facebook," said Hitwise analyst Heather Dougherty. "A further snowball effect in terms of user interest might occur, too, since most people like to be part of something that's popular."

This is the first time Google has been bumped to second place since September 2007 when MySpace took the top slot for a single week.
