Yet Another Facebook Story: One In Five People On The Web

Michael Arrington of TechCrunch reports that Facebook is simply killing it.

In November 2008 Facebook drew 200 million unique worldwide visitors; more than 1 in 5 people who accessed the Internet that month visited the site. When sites are that big growth generally stagnates, but in Facebook’s case it’s still skyrocketing. In December, 222 million people visited the site says newly released Comscore stats, a 10.8% month over month growth rate. 22% of the total Internet audience went to Facebook in December.

As I mentioned previously here, FB jumped the tech scene to catch on en masse. I’m now hearing stories from friends about the intense peer pressure people are applying in regards to this site. Apparently, friends don’t let friends miss out on Facebook.
