Media Monday: Facebook overtakes Google in 2010 visitors

Poynter is reporting that Facebook is the most visited website, most searched term on the internet and valued at $50 billion. Experian Hitwise has all the stats on most popular websites and search terms for the past year.

Last year Facebook came in third behind Google and Yahoo Mail as most visited websites. Variations of Facebook account for four of the top 10 spots on the list most search terms on the internet. But I didn't need a press release to know Facebook's presence on the Internet was bigger than big. I realized it when I got a friend request from my 75-year-old grandfather this year.

Another fun fact: Kim Kardashian was the most searched personality in 2010.
