Facebook Reaches 500 Million UsersSubmited By Faris Hussain
Facebook reached its 500 millionth member. Because of privacy constraints, we won't know exactly who that is, or where; and there's no prize waiting for him or her. Nonetheless, those numbers generate some huge and interesting statistics in the aggregate.
'This is an important milestone for all of you who have helped spread Facebook around the world. Now a lot more people have the opportunity to stay connected with the people they care about.'
To mark passing the 500 million figure, the company is launching a new application from today known as 'Facebook Stories' which will encourage people to upload their real-life stories to share with others.
He says, the future of social media is mobile. More phones will be able to support Facebook giving even more people access to their online communities from the palm of their hand.
