Twitter is the social networking site that has experienced the most recent growth in new members. On the other hand, a very small number of people have joined MySpace in the past year. Fewer than 3% of all MySpace users joined within the past 6-months, 10% joined within the past year. Over 75% of MySpace users joining the site two or more years ago. In comparison, nearly 60% of Twitter users, 39% of Facebook users, and 36% of LinkedIn users joined within the past year.
Let’s talk about MySpace. It’s still the second most popular social networking site in the U.S., but just barely—it’s much less popular than it was in 2009, and the vast majority of its users joined more than two years ago. Also, Facebook and Twitter see the most frequent use: About half (52%) of Facebook users and a third (33%) of Twitter users visit the site daily, compared with 7% of MySpace users and 6% of LinkedIn users.
