Facebook Nearing 700 Million Members
Leslie Horn By Leslie Horn
army just keeps getting bigger. According to Facebook statistics
blog Socialbakers, Facebook is about to hit 700 million users.
the growth came from Brazil, where Facebook added more than
1.9 million new users in May, amounting to 11 percent growth.
Indonesia had the second-highest growth rate (four percent),
adding more than 1.5 million new Facebookers. Rounding out
the top five is the Philippines with 1.3 million new users,
Mexico with 1.1 million, and Argentina with about a million.
Facebook says it has more than 500 million users, and the
company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Facebook confirmed that it had reached half a billion users
last summer, and considering Facebook's undeniable expanding
presence throughout the world, that number is likely outdated.
States, however, wasn't a contributor to last month's growth,
and wasn't even listed in Socialbakers' list of top growing
countries. However, the U.S. is still the most-represented
country on Facebook, with about 150 million members on the
people, Facebook is an important part of how they feel connected
to others. In fact, a recent study said that 53 percent of
young people (ages 16-22) would rather lose their sense of
smell than give up their social networks. The results were
culled from a poll of 7,000 people between the ages of 16
and 30 in countries including the U.S., the U. K., Spain,
China, Brazil, India, Mexico, and several others. Accordingly
all of the aforementioned countries, minus the United States
and China, were referenced in Socialbakers' top 20 list.
