Facebook Is Growing Fast; But No Match For Twitter

Labels: , ,

It is no surprise that Twitter is growing fast, but just how fast? According to Nielsen, it has grown an overwhelming 1,382% over the past year (from Feb. 2008 to Feb. 2009). The chart you see here is the 5 fastest-growing sites in the U.S. right now. Other websites include, Facebook (obviously), Zimbio, Multiply, and Wikia. Apparently, Nielsen's 1,382% increase in Twittering is just a guess and could be an underestimation because so many people use Twitter via cell phones. Apparently, those ranging from ages 35 to 49 are the largest demographic on Twitter and it is surprisingly not teenagers.

I have had so much time on my hands this past week (Thanks to my March Break), and for the past 2 days I have spent a lot of time actually using my Twitter account. I feel that it is a great way to earn a bit more traffic for my blog. I hope I can hit 1,000 followers by the end of the day.

On a side note, Facebook has grown an estimated 228% over the past year.
