Facebook beats MySpace

The King is dead


Facebook has dethroned MySpace to become the world's most popular social networking Website. According to industry tracker comScore, more than 132 million people visited Facebook in June, as compared to the approximately 117.5 million that went to MySpace.

What has been Facebook's ace card has been the way it has tailored versions of its Website to languages other than English. comScore Vice President Jack Flanagan said in a press release. He said that by increasing the site's relevance to local markets through local language interface translation, the site is now competing strongly or even capturing the lead in several markets where it had a relatively minor presence just a year ago.

Generally, social network sites have been growing faster than an anoxic three year old who is destined to become the world's sumo champion.
