Hitwise Mobile Debuts; Facebook Places Third In Market Share, Average Time Spent

Facebook was the No. 3 mobile website both in terms of market share of visits and average time spent during the week ending Feb. 23, in the debut of Hitwise Mobile from Experian Marketing Services.

Google dominated the market-share rankings, pulling in 17.27 percent of visits, followed by Google-owned video-sharing site YouTube at 4.55 percent, and Facebook at 2.65 percent.
