In this infographic, the two internet giants, Google and Facebook, have been paired up side by side. This unique infographic helps visualise the revenue and visitors of both companies.
Facebook is a social network and Google a search engine, but both companies make money from advertising, and they’re both battling for the same advertising dollars, for mindshare of the same users to view the ads, and ultimately for ownership and control of the same raw ore that makes network companies work, or not. Facebook and Google represent different epochs in technology.
