June 2008 Comscore reported that Facebook has officially dethroned Myspace with 132 million unique visitors compared to Myspace 117 million. Facebook had tripled its visitor count from last year with only 52 million visitors.
Facebook has been on the prowl for the #1 spot for the longest time slowly gaining momentum over the years and attacking the competition at their strong points.
Previously I didn't focus too much in Facebook because at the time Myspace was my one stop shop for Social Networking as my personal site and I didn't feel the presence of business building on there. I left the task of my Business Network to LinkedIN.
Facebook has been slowly laying the ground work for business contacts and business networking. Just recently Facebook quietly copied LinkedIN's popular feature of "People you may know" which played a strong role in building business relationships.
This past year we seen Facebook go under through some major surgery and improvements. This has been all foundation for the future ahead in tweaking to become more business savvy in dominating LinkedIN and Myspace combined.
Is Facebook going to dominate LinkedIN in the long run? probably not but will give LinkedIN a run for its money and already has shown domination over Myspace.
If you haven't done so already start exploring the new changes Facebook has already incorporated and keep an eye out for the Business Focus changes in the upcoming events. I have already started putting a bit more effort on my page and will start slowly checking in more.
As always thanks for checking out my blog, feel free to leave a comment and have a great day!
