What Happens On Facebook Every 20 Minutes – Are You Surprised?

We have already reported that Facebook is the most searched for website and searched for term on the Internet. Now we are reporting on what happens every 20 minutes on Facebook.

As we already know, Facebook has over 500 million users that are present. We also know that more than half of them are constantly active. With all that in mind we were thinking, have you ever wondered what all of these people are actually doing on Facebook?

According to Democracy UK, these are the figures, 1,972,000 of friend requests were accepted, 1,000,000 of links were shared, 2,716,000 of photos were uploaded, 1,323,000 of photos were tagged and there were 1,851,000 of status updates. Also there were 1,484,000 event invites sent out, 1,587,000 wall posts, 4,632,000 of messages sent and an astonishing 10,208,000 of comments.

We were a little surprised at the sheer number of comments made inside 20 minutes and it would be interesting to get a comparison between these statistics against those users playing games on Facebook. It would also be interesting to see how many people are using the locational addition to Facebook.
