Facebook is the world’s second most popular site. Each day hundreds of millions of users log-on to Facebook creating huge traffic loads. To better understand how Facebook meets this challenge we analyzed how quickly Dotcom-Monitor’s Facebook Page fully loads in a browser from several worldwide locations. To acquire this data we used BrowserView Monitoring™, which was set to use an Internet Explorer browser, monitoring every 30 minutes for five days.
