In the world of online social media, users may or may not be aware that Facebook is one of the largest sites currently in use. Co-Founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has commented that Facebook could see numbers of users reaching an astonishing 1 billion.
According to ninemsn, the website currently has 500 million users. If Facebook can reach out to other countries such as China, Japan, Russia and South Korea then this new figure could easily be achieved. In Russia for example, Facebook has presently less than 1 million users, but with the current growth rate expanding, Facebook would like to exceed this figure.
Mark Zuckerberg has been quoted as saying “that Facebook estimates of
($1.14 billion) just in revenue this year 2010 could be achieved”. One of the reasons contributing to this, could be that Facebook have become the top US publisher of display ads on the web. It appears that display ads in the first 3 months of the year captured users, and produced a 16.2% of the market share, double that of the previous year of 7.5%.
Are you one of the Facebook users that are included in this yearly figure?
