Top 15 Most Popular Social Networking Sites

Top 15 Most Popular Social Networking Sites as of September 2011
Here are the 15 Most Popular Social Networking Sites as derived from our eBizMBA Rank which is a constantly updated average of each website's Alexa Global Traffic Rank, and U.S. Traffic Rank from both Compete and Quantcast. "*#*" Denotes an estimate for sites with limited Compete or Quantcast data. Last Updated: September 12, 2011

 


EDITOR'S NOTE: I have personally managed hundreds of social media accounts for car dealers, but establishing a presence, content placement and distribution strategy that incorporates the top 15 networks is a viable and effective means of leveraging social media marketing... Ralph Paglia

Tom, if you go to http://www.compete.com you will find they are a web traffic research, analysis and reporting firm.  They also happen to be the web traffic research company that Google uses.  Compete Rank is the 1 to 4,000,000,000 ranking in total monthly traffic that a site has according to Compete, Inc.  Compete Ranks of less than 1,000 mean you are in the top 1,000 for total unique visitor traffic out of over 4 billion websites.  It is interesting that sites like Facebook get a Compete Rank of 3, meaning there are two sites that get more traffic... I am sure Google is one of them.

Ralph, what is Compete Rank?  Don't know that one.
Comment by Ralph Paglia on September 14, 2011 at 7:17pm
Bill, apparently, the team putting this list together kept it restricted to social networking sites whose focus is people connecting with people.  YouTube would be ranked above LinkedIn and below Facebook if it were based on monthly unique visitors.

And where is YouTube?
