Interesting Facebook Facts

Found this info on one of my feeds yesterday and thought I would share it with you.

Facebook: Did you know?
By vibelog
Facebook is quickly growing in popularity and usage on a daily basis. The statistics* are so amazing, I had to share some fun facts!

1.There are over 400 million active users on Facebook
2.The median user age is 33
3.1 in 3 U.S. residents has a Facebook account.
4.50% of users log in on any given day.
5.There are 55 million status updates on Facebook every day.
6.3.5 billion pieces of content are shared on Facebook each week.
7.The fastest growing segment of Facebook users is women aged 55+ years.
8.Facebook surpasses Google as the most important site on the internet.
9.There are more groups on Facebook than videos on You Tube.
10.Facebook supports over 65 languages.
11.Over 700,000 businesses use Facebook.

Are you on Facebook? If so, how often do you log in? Does your company use Facebook yet?

While I don't believe Facebook is a salvation for or sole answer to a company's advertising strategy, I think it should be incorporated into a well thought out marketing plan. It is hard to argue with 400 million users and why would you want to try?
