Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery, James

15 08 2007

Since I’ve been feeling far too guilty for not having posted anything for ages, I have now resorted to plagiarism…  but it’s OK as it seems that James’ thinking wasn’t entirely his own (is anyone’s these days, I hear you cry…).

Anyway, the very smart James Warren found this interesting – and so do I…  the latest stats on the phenomena that is Facebook:

  • Over 150,000 registrants daily – that’s 1 million a week since January
  • 35 million users today – of course that number will be off a million one week from today
  • Half of users are outside college – that number was zero in Sept. 2006
  • 0ver 40 billion page views in May 2007
  • The average visitor stays 20 minutes
  • Most growth is among people over age 25
  • 47,000 Facebook groups
  • #1 photo sharing app on the web – 2.7 billion photos on site
  • More than 2,000 applications – the Top 10 are: Top Friends, Video, Graffiti, MyQuestions, iLike, FreeGifts, X Me, Superpoke!, Fortune Cookie & Horoscopes…  the smallest of these has over 4.5 million users
