Facebook Reaches 750 Million Users Milestone, Still Counting!
From a dorm room experiment to the world’s most popular social networking networking , Facebook has evolved dramatically over years. There was a time when at 500 million users Facebook was considered the epitome of social networking.
The company has climbed over that, and reportedly had as many as 600 million users in the first quarter of this year. However, thousands of users have been joining Facebook daily on a global scale, and that ushered Facebook towards a new milestone where it is just 250 million users short of boasting a 1 billion users data base.
Facebook Corporation disclosed that it has over 750 million users now. It also announced a feature upgrade for Facebook chat which now brings Skype-powered video calling. This will enable Facebook users to chat with their friends face-to-face over Facebook Skype chat.
Skype and Facebook have partnered to deliver this feature. By the way of a browser add-on users can video chat on Facebook over Skype with their Facebook Friends. Although, the company did not specify the list of browsers that will support the add-on, almost all major browsers should be recorded in the list. Another feature that Facebook rolled out is the multi-person chat. Besides this, the chat feature sports a revamped look and a much decent interface. The announcement of video chat service is seen as a move to counter the popularity of Google’s very own social network called Google+ which also allows video chatting with its +Hangouts feature.
From 2004 to 2011, the company has attained 750 million users. It is believed that Facebook will soon reach the 1 billion users milestone provided the new kid on the block (yeah, you guessed it) Google+ doesn’t play spoil sport for FB.
Google+ is expected to compete head-on with Facebook . It’s fresh new approach towards online social networking and modular feature set is expected to considerably effect Facebook, especially since all Google Profiles that are private will be deleted after July 31st and users will be coerced into making their profile public, and endorsing them as a part of the Google+ social network.
It is worth noting that Facebook may very well boast about its 750 million user base, but a considerable part of it may be dormant users and some users may have multiple FB profiles with different names, so the exact number of active users on Facebook seems to be a little obscure to us.
If Facebook continues to integrate its services with different platforms providing promotional means of Facebook Sign-up and Facebook Log-in at the plethora of websites and services on the web, it will constructively affect the Facebook user base which may soon be over a billion users. Until that happens, this milestone is certainly worth a thousand celebrations for Facebook, and a moment of pride for loyal Facebook Users.
