Report says Facebook, Twitter and blogs are more popular than email

A recently published report says that social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and blogs are more popular than email.

During December 2008, there were 242 million unique visitors to so-called member communities but only 236 million to email sites around the world. The figures are mirrored in Britain, with 25.6 million visitors to sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Blogger compared with 24.2 million users logging on to Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo mail.

I have just discovered Twitter myself, you can follow me here.

Twitter is becoming more and more mainstream with Twitter users including 10 Downing Street, Barack Obama, the BBC and Google.
