    I find it interesting to have seen this article on the same day that Yahoo released an article about how the FBI is on the social networking sites catching criminals.

    Kind of ironic.

      So this is like a proof that virtual world is no more a separate thing, it has very much become part of our everyday lives.

      Criminals will go where there are targets.

      I just saw that article and posted in on my FB wall, it was about privacy online, maybe not the same one.

    I would say it's "more proof" of just that. Heck, not that long ago, I saw a video of a guy who posted his relationship status change to FB DURING HIS WEDDING! Right before he "kissed the bride."

    "Facebook topped Google to become the most visited U.S. Web site last week, indicating a shift in how Americans are searching for content."

    I think they've missed the point. It's not being used as a search, it's being used as a means of communicating, broadcasting and entertainment.

    Something I found interesting while doing keyword research is that in a month there are over 1.1 BILLION searches at Google for the exact term facebook.

      I've never understood why people type a site into a google search...  hmm just enter in the address bar..

    Yes, it's nuts. The guy that created Facebook is only 25 and he's worth over $4 billion now (from what I read).

    there is no point in comparing facebook and google. Both have a totally different purpose

    Facebook is providing a platform for advertisers to reach a target audience and it will be more streamline and specific which is something Google has not been able to accomplish.

    And without a doubt, with the most recent activity of HubPages members, utilizing FB more for sharing their article has helped to do that. wink smile

    Umm I think this is stupid. FB is stupid. Atleast google gives you information. FB only lets you play games and tlk to friends.

    Hmmm......? I get readers for my hubs from Facebook.  I among others actually share our hubs with Facebook, when we publish them. Therefore, we do get visitors/readers/viewers.

    Do they translate into clicks? Who knows, my concern is traffic. lol
