Facebook’s traffic eclipsed MySpace
There is indeed power in open social networks and social applications(widgets), and Facebook, that was founded in 2004 as a social site for students at Harvard University, spread quickly to other colleges and eventually into work places. The Silicon Valley company, in terms of unique visitors per day, is causing MySpace to really think about their current traffic. Facebook has already eclipsed MySpace based on the chart below.
I personally prefer Facebook rather than MySpace. The fact that they ought to add privacy controls and plans chat feature for their users on an article I read, it is no doubt that Facebook is way better than MySpace. It sure shows that they are to preserve social distinctions between friends, family and co-workers online.
Use of Facebook has exploded fivefold over the past year and a half. Two-thirds of its users are now located outside the United States compared with about 10 percent 18 months ago, when most members were student age and in the United States.
MySpace has to think of something now.
