There are numerous other statistics which would be equally hard to belive but as they say fact is stranger than fiction.
By any conventional understanding the numbers seems atrocius , FB has recently announced that they would cross 200Mn soon . Which , going by the above explosive growth , doesnt seem to be a long shot anymore .
My question is where is this heading ? By simple forecasting (not taking into account the exponential growth ) FB should have 1 Billion users by 2011end i.e in less than 3 years. Just Imagine.
I couldnt find the countrywise users of Facebook at one location so thought of compiling one just for fun : Here is a list (ref FB ad manager) for your reference (collated at 1600hrs GMT+8 30th March 2009) . This list would be in obsolete by the time i finish this post and upload it !! But surely it would be good fun to check out the new numbers in about a day or two !!
