It appears Facebook has hit a new milestone.

New numbers show the Palo Alto based social networking giant is now the third largest website in the world -- replacing fellow Bay Area company Yahoo.

Facebook had nearly 650 million unique visitors last month -- that's about 20 million more than Yahoo.

Google and Microsoft still hold the top two spots.
