Facebook has confirmed that they hit 200 million users today which is a bit behind considering they should have hit 200 million over a week ago as we previously wrote. So why has Facebook decided to wait until now to announce the 200 million mark? My guess is that it was due to their communications department which didn’t want to reduce the amount of press coverage due to preemptive articles about the company’s growth.

Technically Facebook stated they had 200 million users back on March 27th during a Facebook Tech Talk.
