Latest stats have shown that Facebook accounts for a whopping 25% of all page views in the U.S which makes the social network the site that is visited every one in four times by users. This huge amount of traffic is rapidly growing and Facebook is responsible for 10% of all Internet visits.
Different statistic companies are varying in figures and opinion; Mashable via comScore is showing huge growth from Facebook which is a 55% year over year increase. However Facebook has been placed at 151.13 million U.S. unique users for October 2010, slightly behind Google’s 173.3 monthly unique users, which means the search giant is the social network’s only serious competitor for web traffic domination.
Business at Facebook is booming and they will continue to grow with outstanding speed; CEO Mark Zuckerberg said back in July that his site had reached 500 million members and then recently that half of them visited every single day. Another factor that the growth can be attributed to is new products such as Facebook Places and the recently released messaging system.
It will be very interesting to see how the social network expands and grows next year, with the prospect of a 1 billion member celebration. Is there anything out there right now that can stop Facebook from being the dominant internet force that it arguably is. Tell us your views in the comments.
