Facebook welcomes 200 millionth user

Since yesterday, the global Facebook userbase is 200 million active users strong. Mark Zuckerberg personally commented on this major achievement through a blog post. What does 200 million people mean to him?

  • It took 20,000 years for the world population to get to 200 million people.
  • It would take 46.5 years for 200 million babies to be born in the U.S.
  • Facebook would be the world’s 5th most populous country, bigger than Brazil, Japan and Russia.

Mark seized the opportunity to announce the Facebook for Good initiative:

To celebrate and support all of these voices and their potential to improve the world, we are creating a space on Facebook where people can share their stories about how Facebook has helped them give back to their communities, effect change or connect with a distant relative. We’ve also worked with 16 charitable and advocacy organizations to create gifts that are now available in our gift shop. The organization the gift represents will receive between 90 percent to 95 percent of the cost of the gift, after administrative expenses for the transaction, so we encourage you to share your passion for a cause with your friends and in doing so, support the cause. Facebook will not keep any part of your contribution.
