Facebook Facts

From The Independent last week:

Based on the one billion figure if Facebook were a company it would now be the third largest in the world, behind China’s 1.34 billion people and India which has a population of 1.2 billion.

According to the figures, Facebook has also seen:

140.4 billion friend connections.

219 billion photos shared (265 billion photos including all uploaded photos).

1.18 trillion “likes”.

17 billion location check-ins.

62.6 million songs played 22 billion times (since September 2011)

It’s interesting to think about this result through the viewpoints of different generations and the ingredients of successful social software.

Even if the figures are only (really) half right, it’s still rather amazing…
