There has been a lot of talk about Facebook unseating MySpace as the top social network. While that may (or may not) happen sometime in the future, the so-called gray lady of Social Networks is holding its own.
What is more interesting is that even though Facebook platform opened up to more apps, the Palo Alto-based start-up saw an actual decline in its page views. (Comps below the fold)
One could see some further declines in Facebook’s numbers, since their core demographic, the college crowd isn’t going to be around much to obsesses about well, Facebook. Nevertheless, Facebook’s year-over-year growth is pretty impressive. For June, the page views were up 143% while the unique visitors were up 103%. In comparison, MySpace page views and uniques grew 54% and 35% respectively.
This one will be interesting race to watch.
