About this chart
The chart below is in logarithmic scale so that the smaller sites wouldn’t just a single line around 1% of social network market share. Every month in the chart lists the top 10 sites of that time by the market share of visits. Please note that it is just a percentage and 30% in January 2011 is a lot less than 30% in December 2012. The gaps in the the lines mean that the site wasn’t in the top 10 at that time.
