Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Last week, Facebook was the most visited Web site in the US, actually climbing above Google. That's quite an accomplishment considering that there are still probably a lot of people who Google "Facebook" to link them to the site before getting their social network fill.

Web metrics firm Hitwise reports that for the week ended March 13, Facebook accounted for 7.07% of all US online visits. Google took 7.03%. The next closest site was Yahoo Mail, at 3.80%.

"One reason for Facebook's success is the features that make it easy to share information and online content with friends. This content sharing is making it the first destination for people going online," said Hitwise's Matt Tatham in a Computerworld story.

Tatham also added, though, that Google appears to be taking the top spot again this week.

Yet, this is the first time anyone has dethroned Google since 2007.
