    1. Facebook is undoubtedly one of the best social networking site around. With the growing number of users day by day, there is a bigger chance for you succeed online. You can promote your business to the millions of users.

    2. Yea, its really a good news for facebook and i can now see the hardwork and effort of mark zuck in his quest to control the internet like Google

    3. There is no doubt in the fact that facebook has become the ultimate destination for online socialising in a small period. A large amount of the total world population is currently using facebook on a daily basis and is active through their smartphones, laptops and computers. This makes it prominent to be used by so many users.

    4. It’ interesting that they hit that user benchmark. I wonder what percentage are genuinely “active” users and how they assess this.

    5. This is indeed a big number. Most of the population of the world knows how to use a computer or laptop and also use internet on it. They all are online for some or the other purposes at some point of the day and this is getting them closer. Hence, billions of people are active on social networking sites like facebook.

    6. None of the social networking sites can compete with facebook. As Google is search giant, facebook is social networking giant. 🙂
