The traffic is booming in the social networking site around the world. According to a survey result by Gigya, Facebook drives 44% social sharing, where Twitter drives 29%. their old rivals Yahoo and mySpace drive only 18% and 9% respectively. Now you can understand why Google is focusing Buzz. they are trying to get those social traffic. It has a great potential & day by day the people are more attracted by social network. This traffic comes from shared links, photos, and videos.

Such social sharing is tied to different identity and authentication platforms across the Web. If you can log into a site easily using your Facebook or Twitter account, it is easier to broadcast links from that site to your friends.

Gigiya powered a stat for 30 days. They did it by sharing widgets on more than 5,000 content sites, including ABC.com. NBA.com, PGA.com, Answers.com, and Reuters. Consumers can click a share button on these sites and send an article link, photo, or video via a menu of different services including Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Yahoo Mail, Gmail, and AOL. Over the past 30 days, people have shared almost a million items over the Gigya network.

Here is how the services break down (note that these are relative numbers) :

Distribution of shared items
Facebook: 44%
Twitter: 29%
Yahoo:18%
MySpace:9%

It makes sense, people prefer to broadcast links rather than share them one at a time via email. Although Yahoo makes a strong third-place showing. When it comes to authentication, simply using your existing username and password to log into another site, Facebook is still the most popular via Facebook Connect, but only just barely. Google via Gmail and Yahoo are almost equally popular, at least on certain types of sites where people are just reading for themselves like news sites. On entertainment sites where people are more likely to share content, Facebook Connect makes up the majority of logins.

Here are the stats:

Share of Authentication By Platform:

News sites:
Facebook: 31%
Google: 30%
Yahoo: 25%
Twitter: 11%
AOL: 3%

Entertainment sites:
Facebook: 52%
Google: 17%
Yahoo: 12%
Twitter: 11%
MySpace: 7%
AOL: 1%

Facebook Chat is also a strong option, making up more than half of all live event chats measured by Gigya.

Live Event Chat:
Facebook: 56%
Twitter: 28%
Yahoo: 9%
MySpace: 7%

A broader view of sharing on the Web comes from Gigya competitor AddThis, which has its sharing buttons on more than 600,000 Websites. (Gigya tends to be on larger content sites). AddThis also shows Facebook on top when it comes to sharing on the Web, but with a smaller 33 percent share. Twitter is at 9 percent, but it gets beat by email and printing out content as options provided by AddThis. Even with these broader numbers, more than 40 percent of sharing is through Facebook and Twitter.

    I don’t see why so many people like facebook, or for the matter, why so many people like social sites period. I mean why can’t society just go back to the way it was before social networking came along, that would be good. I mean why talk to and connect with people over a computer, why not just do it in the real world? It’s better that way anyway. Whats the point of sharing photos, or even videos online? The cyber world sucks because it’s boring and false. I will stick to my communicating with people in the real world and in person, where i actually know who i am talking to. Someday all these social sites will become an old fad anyway.

    I noticed there is no date on the article, and no date on the statistics. If you cannot qualify a date for the data, then it is a waste of time to read it.
