Facebook Is the Most Popular Social Networking Site

It's hardly any surprise that Facebook was the most popular social networking site in America in 2011 (January-October). What might surprise is that Twitter is only third on the list surpassed by Blogger. According to Nielsen do 137,664,000 unique visitors visit Facebook each month. This is more than three times the number of unique visitors visiting Blogger.
