Web analytics firm ComScore reports Facebook is conquering Europe, since the social networking site began offering localized versions in January 2008 it's been growing exponentially in many European countries. Facebook now accounts for 4.1 percent of total web browsing time in Europe, up from 1.1 percent a year ago.
That's most dramatically reflected in Spain, where Facebook's reach has grown tenfold over the course of only a year and is now in the No. 1 spot
In fact, ComScore said Wednesday, the only countries where Facebook isn't the No. 1 or No. 2 social network are Germany, where it ranks fourth; Russia, where it's seventh; and Portugal, where it's third. Facebook's biggest stronghold in Europe is still the U.K., where it has 22.7 million active users, followed by France with 13.7 million.
MySpace is still the social networking king in the US, but some believe Facebook will surpass it next year if it sustains current growth rates.
