Facebook Reaches 350 Million Members

December 2, 2009

facebook-logo-square-webtreatsetcIn June of 2009 Twitters Analytic data indicated that Twitter is  no longer gaining members, this is conveniently after teen sensation Miley Cyrus had closed her official account, but Twitter is reporting to now be recovering.

Today when Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg released a open note hinting that Facebook had hit a massive milestone of 350 Million Users. Facebook last year in December reported it had around 150Million users, amazingly they have gained over 200million users in less than a year.

Tho Facebook and Twitter continue to grow, Myspace seems to be losing traffic, and Bebo. A few months back Myspace had launched pre-paid debit cards exclusive to both new and old members. Myspace traffic has not increased.

Myspace so far has lost 28.41% unique views, with Bebo losing -27.96%.

So far Questions being asked by the public lately is why people are going to Facebook not previous big hits like Myspace, and Bebo. Is it because of their friends moving to Facebook? Facebook offers hundred thousands apps? Let us know your views in the comment about what you think

    It’s good to see that Facebook has achieved a great milestone in short time. They have been working hard to provide some good features to users. I am sure they will achieve many more milestones in the future.
