In June 2009, Facebook gained another 24 million unique visitors (comScore), pushing its total unique visitors to 340 million.  This 150+% year over year growth has now pushed Facebook ahead of Wikipedia as the fourth largest Web site in the world.  The only sites that are bigger than Facebook internationally are #1 Google, #2 Microsoft, and #3 Yahoo! 

Facebook still has a way to go to reach Yahoo! (581 million visitors in June).  However, Facebook’s remarkable growth rate makes catching up possible.  In the last year and a half, Facebook has passed MySpace, Amazon, CBS, eBay, AOL, and now Wikipedia.

In the US, Facebook remains the sixth largest site behind Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, AOL, and FOX.
