Social Networking Sites by Market Share

Dreamgrow looked at the top 10 social networking sites from 2008-2012 in order to analyze growth of the major online platforms.  Here are a few highlights:
  • Twitter broke through the 2% level with 2.06% of market share of visits in July 2012. This is the highest percentage of market share for them, ever. Twitter has posted 10 months of solid growth and the trend continues.
  • Pinterest has bounced back up to 0.98 percent of market share. This is almost as much as they had in February when the pinning site started to slide. This is a really big jump... Pinterest is number 4 on the list. It is likely to go even higher in the short future.
  • LinkedIn moved down slightly, from 0.75 to 0.72 percent of market share of visits. August might still be weak for LinkedIn but from September it should start moving up again.

Here is their summary of the Market Share of Visits in July 2012 for the top 3, with the full chart of the top 10 sites below:

  • Facebook 62.21% (-)
  • Youtube 20.30% (+)
