Six Years. 400 Million Users. Facebook is Getting Bigger, Faster.
Yes, it's true: Facebook turned six today. I know it's tough to believe, especially as it seems like only yesterday you started wasting hundreds of hours trying to increase your friend count, playing Scramble, and trying to reconnect with your high school girlfriend (so you could bang her).
But, as it turns out, today isn't just about length, it's also about girth. This afternoon, Facebook founder Mark Zuckeberg announced on the Facebook blog that not only is today their sixth birthday, they'll reached the milestone of 400 million users this week.
Considering the fact a year ago they had less than half that, and they announced the 300 million mark only five months ago, it appears that Facebook's growth is actually still accelerating.
At this rate, they'll should have something like four times the entire population of Earth as users by sometime in May. Which definitely ups your chances of finding someone interested in "what's on your mind."
