If Facebook were a country, it would now be third-largest

Facebook marks milestone
Facebook, the wildly popular social-networking site, hit a milestone today, reaching 500 million users. That’s up by about 100 million in just a few months.

“As of this morning, 500 million people all around the world are actively using Facebook to stay connected with their friends and the people around them,” chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg said on his blog. “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.”

Six years ago when it began, he said, “I could have never imagined all of the ways people would use Facebook.”

At 500 million, if Facebook were a country it would rank as the world’s third-largest, behind China and India but ahead of the United States.

Mr. Zuckerberg, who started the site in 2004 when still at Harvard, also unveiled a new application dubbed Facebook Stories, where users can write about their experiences.
