The other day when I wrote about Mark Zuckerberg and the film The Social Network, I was reluctant in my description of the Facebook's number of users, and reluctantly wrote "over 400 million active users."

My hesitance was because I figured the 500 million figure sited on posters wasn't quite true, but soon-to-be true.

Today is the day it was announced that Facebook has 500 million active users.

That's pretty insane...I've posted the population of the world's 5 most populous countries to give an idea of how much is 500 million. It's pretty crazy that the active users on Facebook is equal to all people in the United States and Brazil combined.


How big will the number of active Facebook users get?
