    Arrow Facebook passes 100 million active user mark

    Mark Zuckerburg, the head honcho at Facebook, announced earlier this week in a blog entry on August 26th that the social networking site has passed the 100 million user mark.

    Following is a quote from his blog entry on Facebook:

    We hit a big milestone today -- 100 million people around the world are now using Facebook. This is a gratifying moment for us because it means a lot that you have decided that Facebook is a good, trusted place for you to share your lives with your friends. So we just wanted to take this moment to say, "thanks."

    We spend all our time here trying to build the best possible product that enables you to share and stay connected, so the fact that we're growing so quickly all over the world is very rewarding. Thanks for all your support and stay tuned for more great things in the future.
    This milestone is truly notable because Facebook does not sugar coat its numbers by counting users that are not currently active on facebook. Unlike many other sites, it generally reports activity levels based on activity in the previous one-month period.

    i would say that despite the wide variety of targeting mechanisms that advertising in social networks offers, its quite difficult to convert everything to a real result.

    people create groups, post there from time to time but very rarely they are interested in really trying something new.

    forums and blogs seem to work more for this.
