Facebook tops Google Traffic and Keeps Growing

This last year Facebook has literally doubled its user base from 150 million users to 350 Million and statistics show it will continue to grow at a rapid pace.  For the first time ever Facebook had more traffic than Google and it is expected to keep growing.

A new report released by the leading global online competitive intelligence service, Hitwise shows that Facebook was the most visited site on Christmas day.    

Is your company information, product offerings, service experiences, and links to your website being shared amongst the 3.5 billion pieces of content posted on Facebook every week?  


Users everywhere can’t help but use Facebook as their gateway to quickly share web links, news stories, blog posts, and other information that they find interesting with one another.  Of the 350 million users, an average of 50% log on to Facebook, each day.  Together these active Facebook users share more than 3.5 billion pieces of content per week. 

Does your company have its own Facebook Page? 

The latest figures released from Facebook Press Room show more than 1.6 million Facebook Pages are active, and that 700,000 local businesses have active Pages on Facebook.   The average Facebook user becomes fans of 2 new Facebook Pages every month.   If your online business or company website is not represented on Facebook and promoted through fans and user content you are preventing yourself from keeping up with the latest ebusiness strategies and internet marketing techniques.
