LinkedIn surpasses MySpace to become second largest social network in U.S.; Twitter sees record-breaking June | It's All Tech

According to data from analytics company comScore, LinkedIn, a social network that launched in 2003 and is focused around a person's work experience, has officially surpassed MySpace to become the second largest social network in the United States. 

LinkedIn, which filed for an IPO back in May of this year, reached an all-time high of 33.9 million unique visitors in June, putting it past MySpace's 33.5 million. On a side note, MySpace saw 34.9 million unique visitors in May, meaning things aren't looking good for the aging social network that was just acquired from News Corp. for $35 million. 

In addition, Twitter saw a record-breaking 30.6 million unique visitors in the U.S. last month, up from 27 million in May. Facebook seems to have responded to this by also having a record-breaking month in terms of traffic, seeing 160.8 million unique visitors in June (up from the 157.2 million in May). Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg officially revealed that his social network, which is just seven (7) years old, has reached 750 million users. 

Finally, Tumblr saw 11.8 million unique visitors last month, up from the 10.7 million in May.
