Facebook Traffic Up 69%, Twitter Up 45%

Fri, May 7, 2010

Facebook, Social, Twitter

Social networking in general grew 100% last year in a report from media data service Nielsen. Facebook and Twitter are still leading the pack with each gaining enormous amounts of users and internet traffic over the past year.

Facebook saw the largest growth with 69% which could largely be attributed to the launching of several games along with the ability to connect with just about anyone. Twitter also saw an increase of 45%.

Not everyone was so lucky as these two giants however, as once social king MySpace lost 24.6% worth of internet traffic. 4-5 years ago, this drop would have seemed crazy to most as MySpace once ruled the social world before Twitter and Facebook became the prominent players they are today.
