Top US Social Networking Sites

From Search Engine Journal
“Nielson/NetRatings has put out a report on the top 10 social sites and blog sites. I think there are some interesting findings such as Myspace still being on top of the social space. “MySpace.com continues to sit comfortably atop the rankings of top US social-networking sites with 58.6 million unique visitors in September, according to a custom list of top US social networking sites.”
Here are the Oct. 2007 rankings:
1. MySpace
2. Facebook
3. Classmates Online
4. Windows Live Spaces
5. AOL Hometwon
6. Reunion.com
7. LinkedIn
8. AOL People Connection
9. Club Penguin
10. Buzznet
What no Webkinz!? Orkut? Plaxo? I am only slightly embarrassed to say I belong or have belonged to the majority of these. Just call it research. Yes, that’s the ticket.
Check it out.

    Besides the fact that independent site analytics are kind of creepy, it seems like Nielsen’s site ratings are of more interest to investors than librarians.
    Unless I am mistaken, they are measuring how much traffic US social networking companies get and *not* how much US residents use which sites. What’s most important is to find out what’s being used locally in our own communities.
