It was bound to happen and many predicted this year would be the one where we see social media - especially Facebook take away the most popular site crown from Google. The social networking site did beat out Google by a miniscule percentage - 7.07% to 7.03% in the US according to Hitwise. It is worth pointing out that social gaming seems to be the reason for the rapid rise of Facebook traffic. Moreover, Comscore and Alexa still rank Google as a traffic leader. Still the trend above has got to worry people at Google, Yahoo and many media sites.
