Facebook colonising the Internet

By on

The Facebook machine continues to power its way into internet exclusivity, and after brushing aside Google earlier in the year as generating the most market share of visits on the entire web, Facebook now accounts for almost 25% of page views in the United States alone.

The site itself accounts for 10% of all internet visits compared to Google’s 7% and YouTube’s (Also owned by Google) 3%.  With half a billion active users worldwide, these figures displaying Facebook’s online dominance should come as no surprise given how it has now become a routine method for our daily socialising.  With Facebook keen to not rest on their laurels and stay committed to evolving and expanding the way we interact with people and the online world, we can only expect this trend to continue into the future.
