2010: The Year Facebook Dethroned Google as King of the Web [STATS]
“Itâ€™s only a matter of time until Facebook topples the entire Google empire, though. Weâ€™ve seen the trend develop for months: Facebook is getting bigger than Google. According to comScore, Facebookâ€™s U.S. traffic grew by 55% in the last year and has shown no sign of slowing down… The social network accounted for 8.93% of all U.S. visits in 2010 (January-November), beating Google (7.19%), Yahoo Mail (3.52%), Yahoo (3.30%) and YouTube (2.65%). However, Facebook didnâ€™t beat the traffic garnered by all of Googleâ€™s properties combined (9.85%).”

“Impressively, 44% of shares occurred through Facebook in 2010, up 33% from last year. That number does not include shares done via Facebookâ€™s â€œLikeâ€ button, which means the actual, universal percentage of shares through Facebook is likely higher. Shares over Gmail increased by 395%, outpacing StumbleUpon, Facebook and Twitter. Shares via MySpace and Friendster dropped 20% and 31% respectively.”
