People Spend More Time in Facebook Than Google

More and more people are being hooked up in facebook, the latest survey from Nielsen reveals that peoples stays longer in Facebook compared to other site. See the table below that I got from

Facebook recorded a 5 hour 46 minutes spent compared to Google which is 1 hr 53 minutes which is about 3 times larger. This only means that more and more people are being hooked up in different flash games that facebook is offering like Restaurant City, Farm Ville , Farm Town , Mafia Wars etc. where users tends to comeback because of their obligation in their farm and/or the game.
So is it having threat to Google ? Google seems to have forgotten the value of social networking. They forgot that Social Networking would also be a great source of Advertising. No wonder why lots of Netrepreneur is on Facebook.

If there is a Search Engine Optimization , are we going to here about Social Media Optimization ( SMO ) in the near future. Well this is not impossible since more and more people is being engage in Social Networking.
BTW you can add me up at facebook [ ] and be my fan at [ ]

    I don’t think Facebook can dominate the world wide web just because of the games and the applications. Users only tend to spend more time using facebook because 1.) They don’t have anything to do besides play/post their pictures and updates/and use facebook chat. 2.) Facebook is like the new friendster for everybody nowadays, and 3.)Social networking can be addictive.

    Facebook is giving Google a real threat. I think I read somewhere that it has already overtaken Yahoo! for the #2 most popular web site.

    If Facebook integrates a search engine into its engine, it might be goodbye for Google.
