Some great takeaway stats:
- If Facebook were a country it would be the 3rd largest in the world
- Facebook tops Google for weekly traffic in the USA
- Years to reach 50 million users via Radio was 38… the Internet = 4 years, the iPod = 3 years…. yet Facebook grew to 200 million users in less than a year!
A big thanks to Sheila Beal of Go Visit Hawaii for highlighting this video on Facebook – yeah how ironic I found it there
