MySpace- chilly days ahead…..page views drop(Dec,07)

Posted on: January 15, 2008

MySpace’s growth may have peaked. Annual page views for the social network fell 7 percent from December of 2006 to the same month in 2007, according to the latest site rankings from comScore — the first time the site’s page views have declined year-over-year. And MySpace saw a 9 percent decline in page views from November to December as well. Facebook’s star, on the other hand, appears to still be rising as its year-over-year growth came in at 43 percent, despite a 12 percent decline from the prior month.

In terms of the number of unique visitors to each social network, however, MySpace is still in the lead, with almost twice the unique visitors as Facebook in December, but only a 12 percent year-over-year rise. Facebook didn’t make the top 10 sites when measured by unique visitors, but comScore data shows that the number of unique visitors to Facebook grew 81 percent from the same month last year.

While page views were down overall by 2.8 percent from the month prior, some sites, such as Google and Craigslist, experienced year-over-year gains that blew those of other top sites out of the water. Google’s page views were up 76 percent while Craiglist’s soared 119 percent over the year before. Google’s notable annual growth in page views is more proof of the search giant’s impressive 2007.
