LinkedIn Assumes #2 Spot among U.S. Social Networking Sites
In June 2011, LinkedIn captured the #2 spot among social networking sites in the U.S., inching past MySpace after a year of 63 percent growth. While Facebook still commands the top spot on the chart, it saw a healthy 14 percent increase versus June 2010. Twitter is not backing down from the race either, up 31 percent year over year, while Tumblr showed the strongest percentage of growth versus last June, tripling its visitor base to more than 11 million monthly uniques.
