Facebooks UK Market Share Falls


The world’s largest social networking site, Facebook has suffered a bit of a downturn in traffic during the last month of 2011, according to a recent report. Although still way ahead of its nearest competitor, Facebook finished the month off with 52.6 per cent of all visits to social networking sites, whereas during the previous December they had a market share of 58.5 per cent!

According to James Murray, who is a market research analyst at Experian the company behind the report, he said that;

“Facebook’s growth is levelling out,”

“Because Facebook had such a clear lead, it was always going to be difficult for Facebook to maintain [its position]. It has probably reached near enough its maximum growth.”
