Roughly Half of the U.K. Population Uses FacebookMarch 2, 2011 0 Comments
Latest statistics show that Facebook now boasts more than 30 million users from the United Kingdom, roughly half the entire population. The societal penetration would probably be even more incredible when you factor out very young children and the elderly.
Here are some incredible statistics. In January 2009, Facebook boasted 150 million users. This number has more than tripled in 2 short years, with 500 million users...100 million of them signed up in the last 5 months.
In other news, Facebook just bought Beluga, an upcoming mobile group messaging company, probably to gain access to a team of former Google employees. Logic-Cool noted in January that Facebook vs. Google will likely be the next great corporate rivalry.
A million here, a million there...pretty soon you might be talking about some serious amounts of people. Here's Zuckerberg noting the 500 million milestone back in 2010. Watching this video, I'm like "Wow, Jesse Eisenberg really nailed his speaking style."
