  1. It was only a matter of time, and now it's finally happened. Facebook has passed Yahoo in traffic to become the third largest website in the world, according to recent numbers from Comscore. Facebook only just surpassed Yahoo, grabbing 648 million visitors compared to 630 million for Yahoo in November 2010, but the overall trend is the impressive part.

    Interesting numbers, frankly when fb came out I never imagined it would turn into something like what it has now, so kudos to them and enjoy as long as it lasts. Or perhaps they may make it last if Google continues to fails to embrace 'social' aspect of online searching/marketing.

  5. Wow.. facebook is a social networking program that people use to converse and meet, basically it run on PC's and MAcs. You can also play games on it too! It was created by Tod blaymire (the co-creator of the squeezable tomato bottle).

  7. I imagine this would have happened a long time ago if a billion different yahoo affiliated programs didn't hijack your homepage.
