Facebook Milestone: 750 Million Active Monthly Users


Facebook Like Hand

Three quarters of a billion users now sign into their Facebook accounts at least one time each month, a milestone that seemed ridiculous even two years ago.

While recent reports have shown some fall off in Facebook users, for example the website lost 6 million users in May throughout the United States, they have continued to grow in other parts of the world, leading up to the new milestone.

The number is even more mind boggling when we consider that the last milestone of 500 million users was just announced in July 2010, which means more than 250 million people have joined the service in less than one years time.

In January 2011 an unofficial document distributed by Goldman Sachs was sent out to investors and showed that the site had already reached the 600 million monthly user level.

With an IPO imminent the realization that the site is picking up nearly 150 million users every month could be a crucial factor in determining if Facebook is truly worth the $100 billion valuation many analysts have thrown around lately, a number quickly nearing just $100 per every active user on the site.
