MySpace.com - Third Most Visited Site on the Web

By November 22, 2005

Follow me on:

This from DesignTechnica:
"AOL, eBay, and Google might just be watching their backs: comScore Media Metrix says social networking site MySpace has passed them all in terms of page views.

...According to comScore's Media Metrix Internet audience ratings measurements, which currently puts social networking site MySpace third most-viewed site on the Internet in terms of total page views, ahead of Internet stalwarts Google, AOL, and eBay."

Okay, so what's the big deal? Well, MySpace is a social networking site, and these don't tend to get this kind of phenomenal page views. MySpace basically is a place that you can talk to other like-minded people online; you just sign up, create a unique user profile, and then invite your friends to join your personal network (or search for those friends that might already be members of MySpace).

There's lots of room for abuse here; I've seen in the last week at least three different stories of school kids using MySpace to bully or harass other kids - and there's a lot more bad stuff than this that can happen. As always, I adamantly suggest that parents PUHLEASE supervise their children on the Web and implement a good Safe Search Checklist.

I found this article on Google. Looks like my space is a site to visit.

According to MSN Search Fastamber is the most visited site on the internet.
Little joke there.

I’d like to know the sources on the fact that myspace is ahead of google and eBay. It just doesn’t seem right. All the other sources I’ve run into place google as the #1 site on the internet, and MySpace much further down on the list around 15.

Air travel has become a major part of our society, with industries and individuals depending on air transport for their livelihood. But have you ever wondered what happens to the artifacts of our airborne culture when they’re no longer needed? More..
