PALO ALTO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Social networking giant Facebook overtook Google's search engine page this week to become the most visited website in the U.S.
According to research from web statistics firm Hitwise, Facebook edged google out by .4 percent, after almost tripling in unique visitors from the past year.
Facebook, which first launched to the public in 2004, has become the defacto standard for social networking and has added music and games and enhanced content features. Google has taken steps to counter Facebook by offering a social networking feature for their Gmail service called Buzz that lets users share media such as videos and photos. Google has indicated that they are considering making the Buzz feature a stand-alone service, Bloomberg reported. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
