LinkedIn Now Gets More Web Traffic Than Myspace
Justin Timberlake won’t like this one little bit.
The ‘SexyBack’ singer, who recently bought a stake in Myspace, was greeted with the bad news Tuesday that in terms of web traffic, the site has fallen from number two to number three behind professional networking site LinkedIn. Of course, behemoth Facebook remained in the top spot.
Facebook had 160.8 million people darken its digital doorstep last month, while LinkedIn brought in 33.9 million and Myspace attracted 33.5 million.
There’s some good news — Myspace still has an estimated 130 million active users, 15 million more than LinkedIn. But the diminished visitor numbers present yet another challenge for the once-powerful social networking site that’s now hoping for a second life.
