Facebook began to increase between 2-3pm - the hour before Her Majesty's speech was broadcast, a survey found. By 5pm it had increased by 25 per cent as broadband Britons contacted their friends and family. But according to the survey, from internet service provider Plusnet, which analysed web usage and traffic over the festive period, the number one website on Christmas Day was Google. Facebook finished second, with rival social networking site Bebo coming in ninth - just behind messaging site MSN. Shopping sites, including Amazon, iTunes, eBay, Argos and Play.com also proved big hits over Christmas and Boxing Day.
