Facebook Is Catching Up With Yahoo Soon

Buzz this

Following Willis’ insightful post on the progress of Facebook and other social sites, I’m excited to present to you where Facebook stands in the presence of other giants: Google and Yahoo – The irrefutable number 1 and 2 in the online world.

Looking at last month’s statistics, Yahoo should already hear the footsteps of Facebook drawing near.

Would Facebook finally break into the top 2 soon? From the Compete chart below, it seems like it would.

Facebook vs Yahoo

Facebook is just behind Yahoo by 6 million unique visits. If Yahoo continues to dip while Facebook maintains its steady growth, a replacement of the no. 2 position is inevitable. We are living in an interesting time as we witness how Facebook could possibly overtake the search engines.

Following Facebook’s success and with more people embracing social media, social sites might just dominate the top spots one day. But will that really happen? Only time will tell.
