As Facebook's page visits drop, YouTube to replace it as No 2 website in US

IANS/San Francisco 09 Aug 18 | 11:46 AM

Although Facebook's app traffic has grown, it is not enough to make up for that loss, CNBC reported on Wednesday citing the study by market research firm SimilarWeb. Owing to a severe decline in monthly page visits, from 8.5 billion to 4.7 billion in the last two years, Facebook is set to cede its long-held second position among the top websites in the US to YouTube, according to a new study.

Facebook earlier reported that in the second quarter of this year, its number of daily active users remained flat in North America and went down in Europe.
