Twitter Traffic Falls -2.43% For November. Facebook -0.47%, LinkedIn -6.93%, Friendfeed -20.95%

This is a monthly series that looks at visitor data for all the major social networks as calculated by Compete.com.

Please refer to previous installments in this series for a more detailed overview.

Unique visitors to Twitter.com fell for the third successive month, dropping 2.43% overall, to 22,481,568, according to Compete.com. More concerning for the network was a -7.24% dip in overall visits.

MySpace dipped -2.64%, and -3.08% overall.

Plurk, which was once considered a rival to Twitter, saw just over two hundred thousand unique visitors for the month, and surely will not last much into 2010.
