    So, Facebook. Some people love it, some people hate it, but a whole lot of people use it.

    That's not just conjecture; they have the numbers to back it up. And they've recently hit a pretty big milestone.

    Despite the website's recent struggles with the stock market (evidently, Wall Street did not "like" their IPO, and they sure as hell weren't keen to "share" it), these numbers go to show that it is still powerful and, more importantly, relevant.

    You now free to post your "The Unsocial Network" jokes here.

    It's Facebook. How active can the users be?

    "This morning, there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month"

    So there are probably a bit more than a billion, taking dead accounts, spambots, etc. into account.

    fake and cloned accounts were deleted last weekend. Some thing like 3.5+ million accounts. It's been said since 2009, 99% of the world human population as an active accounts. That's even after china and several other countries blocked them recently, as use from other countries had climbed up.

    Uh, who said that exactly?

    There's a pretty big difference between 1/7th of the world population and 99% of it.

    Lot's. Just please don't remind me of that. Too many of my friends got too close with these creepy old men and all that other terrible stuff. Lucky they are all safe (as of the writing of this text) but still, FB is just too dangerous. I hate pedo's and support anyone trying to stop them!

    I hear that common-sense can work wonders for avoiding pedos online.

    Their accounts got deleted by their parents for a different reason! I'm guessing they're safe. But, this so called "Beiber Justin" guy may be onto 2 girls I know. I'm gonna report that guy and anyone else like that!

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I've noticed a huge spike in Japanese users lately. When I lived in Japan, they were all using mixi. But I left mixi a few years ago and all of a sudden just within the past 3 months I've been getting tons of Facebook friend requests from former students, co-workers and friends in Japan :blink:

    We should ask Zynga.

    Honestly, the only reason why I have facebook is to post pictures of my life to friends that I can't see in person, check out my hot friends, and post stupid posts to make everybodys day a little bit better.
