Facebook the No.1 social networking site

Facebook cemented its position as the world's No.1 one social networking site attracting over 200m unique users worldwide in November 2008 which, according to Techcrunch, works out at an astonishing 1 in 5 people who used the Internet in that period.

The statistics mean that Mark Zuckerberg's site is growing at over 10% per month. While MySpace is still the most popular social networking site in the US, Facebook now boasts over 100m more users worldwide receiving 80 billion page views in contrast to MySpace's 43 billion.

If the current trends continue, Facebook will have overtaken MySpace as the most popular social networking stateside. The fact that most people seem to have forgotten their MySpace passwords would seem to sound the death knell on its position worldwide.
