Facebook Surpasses 325 Million Users

Facebook has continued to grow at an impressive rate throughout the year, most recently announcing the 300 million user milestone. According to Facebook’s own advertising statistics though, the company is now beyond 325 million users and continuing to grow. The story has become relatively repetitive at this point: Facebook is growing like a weed and doesn’t appear to be slowing.

The other part of the story that we regularly hear is that Facebook is growing at the expense of companies like MySpace, hi5, Bebo, and any other social network which was once successful. While many industry pundits are looking for the young users to go running out the door to Twitter and other sites, the new trend is that the generational gap is being killed and users of all ages are on the same platforms.
