Facebook now has over 300 million users. The US population is 307 million. Let’s face it; Facebook is a force to be reckoned with. So it only makes since to include Facebook in your marketing strategy.
Facebook is changing the cyber landscape at an explosive pace. In a September 16, 2009 announcement, Facebook CEO Mark Zukerberg declared the social networking website has passed the 300 million mark. Just 2 months ago Facebook announced that they had reached the 250 million user milestone. A growth rate of 50 million users in just 2 months means Facebook is adding about 800,000 per day!
Here are some other Facebook facts:
– About 70% of Facebook’s users are outside the US
– There are about 90 million Facebook users in the States
– The fastest growing Facebook demographic is adults 35 and older (Ironic since FB started as a place for college kids to keep in touch.)
But what many consider an even more impressive Facebook landmark is that it is now making money. This puts Facebook ahead of the original goal of being profitable by 2010.
Facebook can help you make money, too. Businesses of all sizes are including Facebbook in their online marketing strategy as much as Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Will we see a new online term called Facebook Optimization (FBO)?
