Facebook logs its 200 millionth member

Posted on


Facebook_lFacebook announced today that it recently notched its 200 millionth “active user.” Which…is a whole lot of sixth-grade crushes. In fact, that’s more people than live in France. Hell, it’s more people than live in Brazil, which is the world’s fifth-most-populous country. If every Facebook member bought a $1 ticket to see the same movie, it would be the top-grossing movie of 2009. (Suck on that, Paul Blart: Mall Cop!) If Facebook users created a Facebook language, it would be roughly the sixth most-spoken language on Earth. If Facebook were a religion, it would be one of the 10 most-widely practiced. Amen! Take that, Twitter!

I could play this game all day. How many football fields, school buses end-to-end, distances to the moon, etc. Your turn, PopWatchers….
