In the race for the top of the social networking heap (which some might compare to the Special Olympics, since even if you win…), Facebook now trails Myspace by only 8% in terms of worldwide traffic according to February comScore data:
Facebook continues to close rapidly on MySpace’s visitor total: At 100.7 million uniques in January, Facebook is now just about 8% smaller than MySpace’ 109.3 million. A year ago, MySpace’s worldwide lead was nearly 4x.
In fact, Facebook already has Myspace beat in terms of daily unique visitors, as shown by the helpfully CTRL+C-ed chart above. Personally, I don’t really get what all the fuss is about Facebook. But I’m also the guy who tried to defend Friendster back when Myspace was the new hotness, so basically, I’m a fucking idiot.
