2010 has marked social network Facebook’s surpassing of search engine Google in visits.
Facebook.com earned 8.9 percent of American webpage visits from January to November 2010. Google.com earned 7.2 percent.
Google dominated the scene in 2008 and 2009, and MySpace (wow, really?!) ranked first in 2007 (now ranked 7th).
But, hark! Take into consideration Google-owned property—such as YouTube and Gmail—and Google remains the king of web traffic, handily so, with 9.9 percent. It’s a partial victory for Facebook, bot not a true one. We’ll see what 2011 brings.
