Facebook More Popular than eBay, Wikipedia, and U.S.
Facebook has become so huge that even some of its applications are drawing more traffic than many major Web sites. For instance, the addictive (and annoying) online game 'FarmVille' boasts 69 million players -- making it more popular than Twitter.
The stats place Facebook firmly in the top five most heavily trafficked Web sites. Its exact placement, and estimated unique visitors per month vary depending on whether you trust Alexa, Nielsen, or Compete (or in our case, none-of-the-above). But what is clear is that Facebook now draws almost as many visitors as Yahoo!, more than eBay or Wikipedia, and is gaining on the reigning king, Google.
Will Facebook every surpass Google? Not likely. But what it may miss in quantity it makes up in quality -- according to Nielsen, visitors to Facebook spend twice as much time there as viewers of Google. [From: TechRadar, Via: Download Squad]
