Facebook Racing Up Social Networking Charts

Facebook continued its torrid growth in November, nearly doubling its traffic to 22 million from 11.6 million a year ago, according to new monthly figures from Nielsen Online and relayed by MediaPost:

“Facebook added more than 2 million visitors in just the last month. MySpace, by contrast, has grown only 7% in the last year but has amassed an audience of 57.4 million. Among the top 10 social networking sites, movie site Flixter was the fastest-growing, increasing traffic 316% year-over-year to 3.3 million. Professional networking service LinkedIn also kept up its rapid growth, with traffic growing almost four-fold to 5.4 million as of November.”

Facebook and MySpace both have strong mobile components. The article also reported that other sites are declining, including Classmates.com, Reunion.com, AOL Hometown, and AOL Community.
