The battle still remains between the two largest online social communities, Myspace and Facebook. While many people think Myspace is “dead”, the site was up a 7% in May compared to May 07’. Facebooks’ numbers were quite impressive increasing 83% from May 07’ according to Nielsen Online reported by Marketing Charts.
The network I’m most impressed with that had a very significant increase in the social space is LinkedIn, a social community for professionals, increase its audience by 146%, reaching 7.7 million people in May compared to its 3.1 million last May.
While Facebook is probably the most talked about social community of the moment, Myspace attracted a total audience of 60.7 million while Facebook had 26 million.
