Facebook dethroned Google in 2010. The results for 2010 are in and it looks like Facebook has dethroned Google as the most-visited site of 2010.
8.93 per cent of all website visits from January to November in the U.S. were to Facebook, the biggest social network. Google was a close second at 7.19 per cent and Yahoo Mail trailed at 3.52 per cent according to Experian Hitwise research firm.
The people behind AddThis, a widget that tracks internet sharing, may be onto the reason why we’re Facebooking more than Googling: the way we’re getting content is much more passive. Rather than visiting news and entertainment sites on our own or Googling topics that interest us, we’re turning to Facebook to find content that comes from friends’ recommendations.
Get this? 44 per cent of online sharing happens through Facebook, a jump from 33 per cent last year.
