    Hey guys,

    Thought I would share these Facebook Facts that I have learn't today.

    - It has more than 690 billion page views a month
    - Facebook currently accounts for about 9.5% of all Internet traffic
    - Users add 100 million photos every day
    - Only 30% of Facebook's traffics is from the USA

    It is quite scary how big this website is growing.

    Regards

    Jo

    That is quite scary. That many people in one place, with all of that information. How much do you rely on FB each day? Is your business dependent on it? (I really hope not). But, there is so much potential here, at least right now. I wonder what the next big thing is going to be, either within Facebook or outside of it. Either way, here is the best way to take advantage of social media.

    It is impressive that's for sure, what worries me is how much information is currently in the cloud. People just don't seem to mind for some reason?

    Now, this can make the conversation more interesting:

    "Bing announces that they deliver better search results for its users. A threat to Google, since Bing would use 500 Million Facebook users niche data to enhance its search results. Bing announced that with this update it would work more like a social search engine." It is an existing thread at BAF

    Facebook is getting huge. Another fun fact: more people visit Facebook's homepage on a daily basis (logging in) than visit Google.com to do a search. Part of that may be that Google search is now embedded in most browsers, but impressive either way.

    There are now few marketers that use Facebook as their marketing strategy that uses to get more clients and customers. They also use it to get partners and alliance to spread their business.

    This is an amazing information, yes it is indeed scary. Hey imagine if your website's traffic trends takes a high jump and out of nowhere suddenly starts getting this many billions of page views and visitors, i am wondering what would be the reaction. Most probably the server will shut down the site for bandwidth limit..lol but will generate a hell of an amount out of CPM based ad networks...lol

    No wonder why there are patent infringment issue on facebook because of this fast growing network. A lot of people get interested with it including how billions of dollars has its profits. I just saw this article regarding the case. Hope all subscribers won't get affected by this issue.

    In my opinion facebook is easy and more effective tool to promote your business or blog etc as you are not limited to 140 characters and their are more than one ways to connect and share your views with your network.

    I have messed up my twitter account at first I blindly followed about 2000 people who are relevant to my field than when I twit my updates no body click on them I don't know how to engage my self with the other people as I don't know how they are and what they are talking about. My manager is really angry with me as I am not utilizing the twitter well...

    What should I do to fix this...

    William the best way to get support for a question like this is to start a new thread, that way it is more likely to be seen and to get the responses you need.
