As I ALWAYS do....
I found this research on Facebook stats. It was from Jan. 2009. Again, to prove my point (whatever it was)
FB has taken a lot of the social communication away from forums. Ironically I couldn't find any stats on forums. While it could just be my googling skills, or lack of them, it appears FB is rather popular.
200,000,000 – number of active users
100,000,000 - number of users who log on to Facebook at least once each day
170 - number of countries/territories that use Facebook
35 - number of different languages used on Facebook
2,600,000,000 – number of minutes global users in aggregate spend on Facebook daily
100 – number of friends the average user has
700,000,000 – number of photos added to Facebook monthly
52,000 – number of applications currently available on Facebook
140 - number of new applications added per day http://thefuturebuzz.com/2009/01/12/soc ... ers-stats/
