Facebook is the most searched term of 2010

It was all about Facebook in 2010

Facebook has become the most searched item on the internet in 2010, according to research by Experian Hitwise, accounting for 2.11% of all searches.

The top 1000 search items for 2010 were analyzed and Facebook was the top-searched term overall, making it the second time the social networking website snatched the title.

Impressively enough, four variations of Facebook were to be found in the top 10 search terms - Facebook, Facebook login, Facebook.com and www.facebook.com - making up 3.48% of overall searches.

Analysis of the search terms also revealed that social networking dominated 2010, with 4.18% of the top 50 searches relating to them.

Other data showed that in the US, searches for Facebook also accounted for 3.48% of all searches among the top 50 search terms, showing a 207% increase from 2009. Facebook is also the new top-visited website for the first time in the US.
