Facebook boasts of 300m faces
The world’s largest social networking site just got bigger with the announcement it has 300 million active monthly users from around the globe.
Facebook also revealed that it has started making money ahead of schedule ;the company had not expected to start turning a profit until sometime in 2010. “This is important to us because it sets Facebook up to be a strong independent service for the long term,” said Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
“We are just getting started on our goal of connecting everyone. We face a lot of fun and important challenges that require rethinking the current systems for enabling information flow across the web.
Facebook hit the 250m user mark back in July. It is estimated that the site is gaining around 5m new users a week or 50m in the last 75 days.
