Facebook was most popular U.S. site last week Hitwise has posted a very interesting chart today, one that shows that Facebook has become the most popular site (by traffic) in the United States, at least for the week ended March 13th, the first time in years that Google has been unseated for a full week.
Visits to Facebook increased 185 percent for the week year-on-year, while Google only saw 9 percent YoY growth. Combined, FB and Google accounted for a giant 14 percent of all US internet traffic last week.

Facebook was the most visited site on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Day and the weekend of March 7th, but never for a full week.
