Based on Compete data, Hubpages got 4.4 million unique visitors in April, grew 1.26 percent month-on-month and grew 139.20 percent year-on-year. Squidoo got 3.9 million visitors, declined by a rather significant 20.64 percent month-on-month and was up by 33.21 percent year-on-year. Twine, meanwhile, reached 2.2 million uniques, grew 67.95 month-on-month and a massive 3,084.88 percent year-on-year.
Compete defines Twine as a social networking website. That’s because, as with Friendfeed, you can connect with others with similar interests using Twine.
However, rather than be centered around a person (i.e. you), Twine enables you to create interest pages to which you and others can add items such as links, articles, videos, and so on. In that way, Twine is more like Squidoo, which allows you to create your own webpages, or Hubpages, which allows you to create hubs.
