Facebook Hits 150 Million Users, Adding 450,000 Users Per Day

This morning Mark Zuckerberg posted on the Facebook blog that the company has officially hit 150 million. That’s approximately 3 weeks after the company announced that it hit the 140 million mark suggesting that the company is now growing at approximately 450,000 users per day. This is a significant pace and if the company keeps up this pace for the first half of 200, the company will easily hit 230 million users. If the pace continues the whole year, the company will surpass 300 million users.

This phenomenal growth is unprecedented, making it the fastest growing social network in the world in absolute terms. Much of this growth has been taking place outside of the United States in countries like Italy, Spain, France, and Switzerland where monthly growth rates are reaching an impressive 50 percent. We will continue to track the company’s growth via our demographic statistics tool.

It will be interesting to see how long the company can sustain this impressive growth rate. Have you been noticing more people using the site?
