January U.S. Comscore stats for MySpace are released on Monday, but we’re hearing they’ll show a big surge in a number of key areas. Average time spent on the site increased to 204 minutes (up 14%), the highest it has been since August 2007. Unique visitors are supposedly up 13%, with Facebook showing a decline of 800,000 or so unique visitors in the same period.
We’ll try to get our hands on the actual stats tomorrow to verify. But it should be noted that these will be U.S. numbers only; worldwide numbers for January, where Facebook is showing most of its growth, won’t be released until later.
