MySpace Is Yesterday, Facebook Is Today

July 29, 2008 10:50 AM

If you’ve still got your MySpace account, it’s time to ditch it because MySpace is so yesterday. But you knew that already, didn’t you?

Facebook has grown 40% year-over-year, according to the latest research from online audience measurement firm Hitwise. Facebook now accounts for 16% of all Internet visits to social networking sites and, although MySpace still dominates with 72% of traffic to the category, its market share is down 6% year-over-year.

Let that be a lesson to anyone who thinks you get to be on top forever.

And in the meantime, friend me up on Facebook!

Buck:

As far as traffic goes, how many of Myspace's numbers equate to those who log on to check any new messages or comments and promptly log out?

I may log onto Myspace every day, but spend my time on Facebook.
