Did you know Facebook hit 400 million users today?

Good evening, Social Rabbit here with your guide to the world of social media.

Facebook announced today that they now have 400 million active users (I better update my preso stats!)  So if that isn’t another 50 million reasons to use Facebook for your business, I am not sure how I can persuade you!  Check out the graph below which shows how they have added 50 million users in 3 months (oh to have a business like that….)

Facebook has been going for 6 years now, and is still improving it as more and more people come on board.  Below are 4 new features that have just been released today – according to insidefacebook.com

  • Better chat accessibility (“Improving chat is the biggest request we get from our users,” Zuckerberg said.)
  • The games and apps dashboards
  • New search type-ahead, and a new method of finding and displaying people whether or not they are your friends
  • A new image uploader, built from the ground up by Facebook
  • It took Facebook 3 years and 3 months to reach 50 million users, and 2 years and 3 months to add on another 350 million.  It just goes to show that it may feel like it happens overnight, but it does take time to get there, so all us Facebook following wannabees still have another 5 years to reach 400 million fans/users/friends we just have to keep pushing.

    Sorry, I can’t add much more to this except bounce up and down like the crazy rabbit I am….
