Facebook has 750 million active members

Facebook has approximately 750 million active members worldwide, who log in to the social-networking site at least once per month U.S. media reported.

It’s a milestone, after the social networking site announced one year ago that there were 500 million members.

That number, which is larger than the population levels of at least a few countries on the planet, isn’t all that surprising. The rate at which 250 million more people joined is the staggering aspect.

Facebook launched in 2004, and it took until 2010 to reach 500 million members. That’s very roughly the addition of 100 million users per year the site has existed, but that’s not an accurate representation of how many people joined Facebook when. Obviously there were far more people joining in 2010 than in 2004 or even 2005.

Facebook itself does not confirm the figures. Presumably the company might wait to deal out updated official numbers until it reaches the milestone of 1 billion members.
