Too many people with too much time on their hands
Web analysts Compete have released their stats for May, and it appears
Facebook traffic has surged by 8% for a total of 82.9 million unique
visitors last month, while Facebook Connect sites generated a further
65 million unique visits. Compete claims some 113 million souls in the
U.S. used Facebook services in May.
Myspace seems to be loosing traffic, while Twitter's growth has
flattened. Juggernaut Google had some 145 million unique visitors in
May, while Yahoo and MSN.com tallied up 135 and 97 million
If Facebook keeps growing at the same rate, it will leave Yahoo, Google and MSN in a cloud of dust by the end of the year.
