Facebook is Bigger Than The Whole Internet

Facebook has more users than the entire internet did back in 2004. Wow, that number is pretty damn impressive when you think about it. If I was Zuckerberg, I'd sell now before FB goes down the MySpace path. big grin Thanks to Mark C. for the linkage.

Just two weeks ago, at its 2011 f8 developer conference, Facebook confirmed it had 800 million active users. Let’s put that into perspective for you: there were only 757 million people using the Internet worldwide in 2004, according to Internet World Stats. Why did Royal Pingdom, an uptime monitoring service, choose the year 2004 as the year of comparison? Well, many tend to forget that Facebook is just a seven-year-old company: it was founded in February 2004.
