    You didn't specify what specific criteria you are measuring by in determining which is number one. Which is number one depends on lots of different things.

    For example if your criteria is which social network is most likely to provide your private information to total strangers then the answer isn't Twitter.

    Well, the biggest social networking site right now - is Facebook in terms of traffic, and member base.

    Ya, but do you remember when Myspace was on top? What do you think made Facebook so popular?

    Facebook's success over MySpace can be attributed to a few key items.

    1. Load time & stability. By removing profile customizations Facebook loaded quickly and their setup insured a near perfect uptime. This makes for a better experience, less waiting, less abandonment.

    2. Exclusivity. Facebook played off of the idea of being something special to excite it's core demographic (college students) to want to join up. Anyone who was in school when Facebook launched can tell you about the buzz it caused as it rolled out around their campus.

    3. The friend feed. As fun as it is to focus on yourself, facebook lets you "stalk" your network which is twice as good. People enjoy seeing the fun, the happy, and yes, the bad, in people's lives and Facebook brought that all together in one central place. Rather than focusing on your own account, Facebook focused on those you knew.

    These items all have contributed to their growth but at it's simply become evolution and time that have made them so big. MySpace was tens of millions of users bigger than the social networks before them who were millions larger than the free hosting companies and forums that started "social". As Facebook has growing the market has matured, people have come to realize the value and jumped on in. It's now more than twice as common to have a facebook account than a college degree in the US.

    In terms of value to your site, facebookcom has a pagerank of 10, twitter.com is 9 or 10, the rest are 8, at best. This changes all the time so pay attention to the buzz around the net. PR closely follows this.

    Hope this helps.

    As everybody else said, facebook is the largest social networking site in many aspects so it doesn't matter which characteristic we're measuring it on, probably facebook will be largest. And most social sites are easy to use but I do fail to understand your goal.

    Probably twitter would take the second place, and LinkedIn may be the third.

    Yet, the people that posts in twitter are a different kind of public than those who like facebook. Many people that uses facebook don't like twitter but many twitter uses do use facebook. That's why you have to address each public differently.

    I don't understand the second part of your question... does it mean that if facebook wasn't easy to use, you would sign up for the second option?
