After a rough week with users revolting about a change in their privacy policy, Facebook has had a great week. This week, Facebook introduced that a new Twitter inspired look was on its way and MySpace announced the loss of 3 key executives (source: USA Today). Two days later, we read another article announcing Facebook as the #1 social network (source: blog). Facebook receives over 68 million unique visitors a month (compared to 58 million at MySpace) as well as 1.2 billion total visits a month to MySpace’s 800 million. This traffic and usage leap frogged Facebook over MySpace.

Side note: With 53 million visits in January 2009, Twitter is now the third most visited social network a huge jump from 22nd place last year.
