The number one billion is quite a large number. Facebook’s number of monthly users recently surpassed it. But what does it really mean? With 14% of the world’s population using it there are still 86% who are not.
Here are some other numbers just as important:
- 300 Million – number of photos uploaded to Facebook daily
- 600 Million – number of monthly active users who used Facebook on a mobile device like a smartphone.
- 43 Billion – that is Facebook’s market capitalization. Now a publicly traded company it has to balance the needs of shareholders versus users. Remember that next time they change their advertising or privacy policies.
- 143 Billion – number of friendships on Facebook – so on average every user has 143 friends on Facebook
So while 1 Billion is very impressive how many people have liked your organization, have uploaded photos about your group, or have engaged you on Facebook?
