Facebook Statistics – Close to a billion active users

Facebook: 1/2 billion active users… daily.

When reading the transcript of an interview between Mark Zuckerberg and Charlie Rose, one stat was pretty impressive:

And one of the things that we are really proud of is that now 800 million people around the world are using Facebook every month and perhaps even crazier — it’s mind-blowing from my perspective: more than half a billion people use Facebook every day. And I just think that’s crazy.

The number of active users (monthly) is now nearing one billion.. that’s 1 out of 7 of any human being walking on this planet is on Facebook. Crazy and impressive it is.

It clearly has become the personal/social web within the broader web. And for businesses and advertisers, it’s clearly that you need to play in both.
