Top 10 U.S. Social Network Sites for May 2008

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.

Will Facebook catch up to Myspace in traffic?
