2007’s Biggest Winners – Porn and Personals

I just read this blog post over at Weblog Tools Collection which quotes the Compete.com stats for 2006-2007 Winners and Losers in terms of traffic.

A few interesting trends are revealed:

  • The web has yet to reach its “Social Peak”
  • Online daters would much rather be subjected to ads than a checkout form
  • New Social Networks still have a chance…as long as they find their niche
  • People place a high value on peer opinion

The overall trend is towards video and networking. Linked In is showing some significant growth, but is it too little too late? They are going the Facebook way as well with opening up their system, but will they be able to capture enough market share is to be seen. The blog sites have shown great positive growth as well – WordPress.com and SixApart.com. Personally, I am glad to see my favorite blog Techcrunch.com in the greatest gainers’ list.
