MySpace – Still The King

I can imagine that all the Facebook hype is a little annoying to MySpace – which is still the largest site on the Internet. That may be some of the motivation behind the press release going out Thursday morning saying, effectively, that they are still the King of Social Networking.

And they have some facts to back it up. MySpace is the largest site on the Internet in terms of page views, at around 46 billion per month (Facebook is around 15 billion and actually dropped about 1 billion between May and June). Nearly 25 million people visit MySpace daily (about 3x Facebook’s numbers), and just over 70 million people in the U.S. visit the site every month.

We’ve included some Comscore comparison graphs below that highlight the differences. Facebook is in the middle of its summer slump, but still has a long way to go to catch up with MySpace in terms of users and page views. And some of the trends show a greater growth rate at MySpace, despite its larger user base.
