Facebook’s ginormous size put into context (chart)

FacebookWe’ve mentioned the tremendous growth of Facebook at numerous occasions on this blog, and it’s fascinating how fast the social network has risen from being an upstart fighting with MySpace to basically leaving the entire social media landscape behind in the dust.

Since Facebook is now so ginormous (that’s the scientific term for it, right?) we wanted to give you a frame of reference for how big the service has become. And as we so often do, we’ve done it with a chart. 🙂

Facebook's user base in perspective


  1. It never ceases to amaze me how much social media has boomed. To see it put into the context of this chart literally blows the mind. You hear everyday in the news, blogs, etc., how Facebook has become an instrument used by so many, not only to communicate with friends and family, but to promote businesses, bring together family with missing loved ones, and the list goes on and on. Truly amazing! Thanks for posting this. It is mind blowing.
