Facebook Generates 1 in 4 Pageviews in the US

24.27 percent of all pageviews in the US are generated by Facebook. YouTube is next with 6.39 percent whereas Google contributes just 5.32 percent.


Why are these numbers important? Look at it this way: Larry Ellison predicted this years back:

“You have to take a broader view and realize this is an industry like any other – telecoms, Railroads; they went through consolidation. Why shouldn’t the computer industry be any different? This shouldn’t have been a surprise to anybody but it seemed to be, and a lot of people thought I was nuts when I said these things. And that’s why they are alone as a consolidator.”

17 Years: Time Required For LinkedIn To Become As Big As Facebook

LinkedIn today said they have an 85 million user base and that they are adding “a new member every second”. How big is this really, in the overall context of professional social networking?

We have seen this “every second” trick before: Steve Jobs famously said “we are selling an iPad every 3 seconds”. Lets do a back-of-the-envelope calculation.

At its current growth rate, and assuming that facebook doesnt grow at all for the next few years – how long would it take LinkedIn to become as big as facebook? 17 Years. Thats right. And thats assuming that facebook doesnt grow at all.
