Swedish media recently proclaimed that Facebook’s days of glory were over (although that particular article misinterpreted some facts from an article in the Guardian). Now it seems that those assumptions might have been a bit premature. TechCrunch writes that Facebook has caught up with the leading social networking site MySpace in terms of unique monthly worldwide visitors, according to data by Comscore. Both sites now have about 115 million visitors each per month.
In February, Adam Erlandsson at Svenska Dagbladet, wrote: “who knows, in six months me might be looking back at the beginning of 2008 as the start of the death of Facebook. But at the moment there are absolutely no proof that that is the case.” Well put. And four months later the signs point in the opposite direction.
