TechCrunch: 2010 State Of The Blogosphere: Facebook And Twitter Drive The Most Traffic (Slides): They use many types of social media (LinkedIn, YouTube, Flickr, StumbleUpon, Digg), but when it comes to driving traffic back to their blogs only two social media services really count: Facebook and TwitterI have long suspected this. People have been like if you want traffic for your blog, become a regular on Digg, go visit StumbleUpon, and I have resisted. I have put my efforts only into Facebook and Twitter.
Most of this blog's traffic I believe comes from Google. And I don't know about Facebook. I hope people click on the Facebook button at the bottom of my posts that allows them to easily take my blog posts to their Facebook walls.

And I constantly feel the need to look for new people to say hello to.
