Twitter Overtakes MySpace as #3 Social-Networking Site
Could MySpace be going the way of Xanga and Friendster?
Twitter has surpassed MySpace to become the third most popular social networking site. Twitter reportedly saw unique visitors rise by 76 percent to roughly 96 million last year, while MySpace fell by 17 percent to 95 million.
Meanwhile, the number two social networking site, Microsoft’s Windows Live Profile, had 140 million unique visitors. Facebook, the granddaddy of all social networks, boasted 598 million. “Any comparisons between MySpace and other Internet services are irrelevant as MySpace’s mix of offerings is uniquely different and specifically focused on audiences under the age of 35,” said MySpace spokeswoman Rosabel Tao in a statement.
