Facebook was Accessed More Than Google in 2010 in the US

It’s been some time that Google dominates the list of most visited websites in the world. It is no wonder that it is web giant call. But in terms of.com addresses, the company lost its most accessed position, at least in the US, to a site that is only growing: the Facebook. According to a US metrics company, the social network Mark Zuckerberg was more accessible to Americans than the search engine Google.

The responsible for this controversial discovery was nothing to Experian Hitwise, accompany specialized in web metrics. According to data compiled by it, the Facebook.com address had 8.93% of American Internet users visits between January and November 2010. In the same period, the google.com address had 7.19% of visits. The scenery changes, however, when all Google services are accounted for, not only the search engine located on Google.com. In total all Google sites managed 9.85% of all accesses in the US period.

The data collected take into account only American IPs, so it’s possible that Google continue to lead over the accesses around the world.
