Facebook Beats Out Google As America’s Most Visited Website


Facebook surpassed Google as the most visited website in the U.S. this year, taking up 8.93% of all site visits between January and November 2010. Google still came in second with 7.19%, and when all of Google’s properties are taken into account - including YouTube and Gmail - Google still reigns as most visited, but that doesn’t really count. This means that instead of spending our days Googling Kim Kardashian or refudiate, we the People are spending them reviewing our own photos, tweaking our own interests, and occasionally analyzing the Facebook pages of our own exes and crushes. But, we already knew this, and we don’t really care, because we have to go change our profile picture.
