But this Christmas the social networking giant has reached another milestone - Web analytics company Hitwise announced this morning "Facebook was the most visited site in the US on Christmas Eve and Christmas day.  First time the site has been the #1 visited US site ever."

Take note, this means Facebook beat out search giant Google for those two days.  Just goes to show how relevant Facebook is to its 350 million users and growing.  After all, the holidays are about being together with the people you love and Facebook is all about staying digitally connected with your friends and family.
