2009: A fa la la la Facebook Christmas

2009: A fa la la la Facebook Christmas

Facebook was the most visited Web site in the United States this Christmas, the first time the social networking site as ever been the most visited U.S. site, Hitwise reported yesterday. The percentage of new visits to the site last week on Christmas Day and Christmas Eve also increased 10 percent, which could have played a part in the traffic increase, the firm reported.

This was also the first time Facebook beat Google in traffic in the United States, according to paidContent. In the United Kingdom, Google maintained its top position as the most-visited Web site on Christmas Day, Telegraph.co.uk reported.

Last year, when Facebook had 140 million users, it also saw a spike in traffic on Christmas. This year users are up to 350 million, AllThingsD reported.
