FaceBook User Satistics
Facebook says its current photo sharing service is one of the most active in the world, with:
- 1.7 billion user photos
- 2.2 billion friends tagged in user photos
- 160 terabytes of photo storage used with an extra 60 terabytes available
- 60+ million photos added each week
- 3+ billion photo images served to users every day
- 100,000+ images served per second during its peak traffic windows.
Facebook now ranks as the sixth-most trafficked site in the United States.
When the Palo Alto, CA-based company launched in 2004, it allowed only college students to join. Eight months ago it opened to anyone, and membership has since doubled to 24 million, according to the research firm ComScore. The site gets more than 40 billion page views per month.
Overall, the site says it is growing 3 percent per week --100,000 new users per day.
The fastest growing demographic is those 25 and older.
Primary rival MySpace remains almost three times larger with 67 million active members.
