This statistical summary of Facebook's rise to world domination is now appearing on many blogs so why not here as well? One in thirteen human beings are already on Facebook and in the USA a staggering three quarters of the population are there. Facebook was recently valued at $50 billion and when you conside how much information they have about a significant proportion of the human race that may even be a conservative valuation.
Who knows how long this boom will last but we would be wise not to put too much trust in one company. The whole concept would have been dismissed as ridiculous only a few years ago - "give us masses of information about yourself and we'll make money out of it." Love it or hate it but you certainly can't ignore it.
