Nielsen Top Social Networks In US For 2011

January 5, 2012 NJAPW

For some reason Nielsen decided to lump social networks and blogging  platforms into the same category. And in that category, the big surprise is:  MySpace is still beating Google Plus. Just kidding–that’s not a surprise…  Google Plus is only 6 months old. But it’s only three slots behind MySpace, and  has half the traffic already. (Who are these people still using MySpace, and why  do I never meet them?)

Meanwhile, Facebook is so far out in front of everyone else that it’s not  even funny, with more than four times the monthly unique visitors of  Blogger.

  1. Facebook
  2. Blogger
  3. Twitter
  4. WordPress
  5. MySpace
  6. LinkedIn
  7. Tumblr
  8. Google+
  9. Yahoo Pulse
  10. Six Apart TypePad
