A few observations:

1) As Josh Kopelman points out, 4 of the top 10 sites (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Buzzfeed) didn’t exist 10 years ago.

2) On Twitter, people seemed surprised to see MSN and Microsoft on the list. I assume they are there because most versions of Windows still default users to MSN/Microsoft pages.

3) Some people on Twitter were surprised that eBay is ahead of Amazon. I think this is because Amazon appeals more to the tech demographic. As they say: “EBay is for people with more time than money. Amazon is for people with more money than time.”
