For the first time, according to the latest data from Compete, Facebook outdrew MySpace in terms of unique visitors. But Facebook isn't the fastest growing network. Twitter's numbers grew 27.6% in December, and 752% for the year. LinkedIn is up 152% for the year. In fact, the only one here that's losing traffic is MySpace. They better figure out a way to grab a new audience, and fast. Their demographic is growing up. See below for the Compete data.

I was in a mall about 6 months ago and I overheard some one say to a friend,

"That other website, FaceSomething, is like the new MySpace"

At that point I knew the tide was turning.

I would really like more professionals to join facebook and leave Linkedin.  Linked in charges $19.99 a mth for features free for use on facebook.

Frankly, people are more authentic on facebook than Linkin and this is a deciding factor for me.

I just hope Facebook doesn't get overrun with teens.  I like FB because it offers a platform that I can use to market myself and my business ventures.  MySpace became to cluttered and FB risk that with all these crappy applications.

I don't think MySpace is going to fade out.  Their demographics might be growing up but there's another generation right behind them that's more in tune with technology.
