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.
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.
WOW!! Thats insane, poor Google (Former Most Visited Site) must be crying in a pool of jealousy ..Goooood for Facebook, well done!!
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.
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.

Something strange is going on. I have a hub that's been doing really well for years. It was hub-pro edited a couple of months ago and traffic increased by a couple hundred a day. Over the last week or so it's hovered around 750 per day. Overall it has almost half a million views.Today, views are...

...so it doesn't show up on our Google home page? When I have my browser open, but have not visited any sites yet, there are icons shown for each site I visit frequently. Hub Pages used to be one of them; now, no matter how often I visit/log in/access the site, it never translates into...

Now that Google and Facebook are going after fake news sites and stories, how will this affect us?There's no doubt fake news have been a problem for a while. And, now, social media and Google are seeking ways to tweak their systems exclude these sites. However, in the process will Hubpage become an...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

Back-links are the main aspect of off-page SEO. There are several ways to get back-links. Social media, like posting your hubs to Facebook and Twitter, forum posting, and blog commenting are the most common. Just stay away from paid back-links, Google is cracking down on that finally. Then there is...
