Infographic: The Fun Facts of Facebook

Whether you are a user of Facebook or not, it’s always there and millions upon millions of people use it every single day. Starting tomorrow, Facebook will be sold on the open market for about $38 a share, bringing the totaled value of the company to a whopping $100 billion. Given the circumstance, we felt it was appropriate to share this graph with everyone that shows some interesting tid-bits about FB and just how much the almighty Mr. Zuckerburg is worth. 

For example, did you know that Mark makes about $67 every second totaling around $650K every week? Or what if Facebook was a country – with over 900 million users, FB would be the 3rd largest country in the world after China and India, basically crushing the US which is home to only 300+ million. In such a short amount time, this website has become an extremely strong force in today’s society and it only looks to go up after the IPO.

Do we have any potential share buyers among us?

  • You know why Facebook went public?

    They couldn’t figure out their privacy settings either.


  • I wouldn’t invest in FB stock. While it’s been the most shockingly success social media form to date, I don’t see it lasting forever. Right now it’s at it’s peak, growth has slowed, and the bottom will fall out in the next few years as FB joins the grave of social networks (ala MySpace, etc.)

  • Buy, flip, repeat.

      That’s really a bad idea, this IPO is way over hyped and that’s going to cause everyone to try and buy a piece which is going to drive up the cost. You would probably get a better deal if you waited 3 months and then invested. If you plan on buying today and selling for profit your probably going to be hurting because so many people who don’t know about stocks are going to drive the cost of this up and then it’s going to drop in value. That’s why most real investors are suggesting stay away for now. You can make money off of stock ya but it’s usually you buy stock in a small unknown IPO and then they do something that rockets them and thats when your share prices skyrocket.

    I spend a decent amount of time on facebook. I pretty much use it as a way to keep up with friends that don’t live close to me any longer and family that’s in other states ect…

    I don’t think it’s a fad, I think it has become an integral part of a majority of people’s daily lives, but I don’t think it’s a smart move to purchase FB stock now. It’s not like Google or Apple where they’ll continue to invent and create new things.

    Facebook is Facebook and it’s probably very close to maxing out in subs. As soon as that happens, it can’t go anywhere but down. As ad sales go down, stock prices go down.

    Facebook will never “die” or go the way of Myspace, but it’s value will definitely drop as it plateau’s and that may be very soon. Everyone who was going to benefit from the stock, will benefit tomorrow, or has already and I would say it’s a poor investment over the next 10 years.

    We may see a rise over the next 1-2 years, but at some point you run out of people to pick up and slowly but surely you begin to lose people to smaller, more private companies and when companies realize that their ads aren’t helping them as much as they’d hope, they’ll drop like flies. FB will have to do what anyone else does and tighten the belt, fire a lot of people and streamline their services.

    Their biggest problem is that already half of their users access the site via mobile devices and advertisements are really hard to view on small devices, this will essentially kill their ad performance as we as a society move to a completely mobile viewing of the internet.

    This also isn’t just a facebook problem, this is an internet problem. Mobile viewing of the internet will essentially kill advertising online, which is essentially the entire reason the internet survives.

      Speaking of ads going down, it may have already begun. GM pulled their $10 million they were spending in ads.

  • imnotmikal

    Wtf does this have to do with Android, or Droid phones…

  • I love the warren buffett stuff in this.

  • chris125

    I think they may do well for a few years but I can see them going the same way myspace did. I mean that was huge for a few years then fell off the map. I am sure something else will come along to challenge facebook. it may take awhile but nothing stays on top for ever

    • michael

      people are saying not to buy FB stock and that the price is inflated and will bust like the tech bubble did in the 90’s. But people didn’t have smartphones in the 90’s either so who knows. BTW hate facebook will never use it

      • Josh Groff

        That’s the same thing I said until 2 of my friends moved out of state for college, all avid anti-Facebook. Unfortunately, it is an efficient means of communication and planning events.

  • Even after all that, you’ll still never beat Google. {{-_-}}

  • BLOCK. {{-_-}}

  • Where can I sell my $100 FB value?

  • FortitudineVincimus

    Jesus.. that is obnoxiously long series of images for crimany sake

    Anyway, in time, FB will fail and there are financial pundits that believe so as much as I do. There will be a social networking backlash as this ubiquitous sharing wave is getting to big, to fast, requires to much effort and is becoming overly invasive. Just watch, you’ll see.

  • FB is a Fad

    • Liderc

      Fairly large fad. Hard to kill something that’s 900million strong.

  • FB sucks. Fill full of narcissistic people. God help us All!

    • FortitudineVincimus

      Amen brother.. Amen

  • Unfortunately the math is wrong. Its not $4016.40 an hour, its a minute. Or is it $66.94 a minute and not second?

  • EvanTheGamer

    Slow news day?

    Also, who cares. lol

  • possomcrast

    They are fricken crazy valuing themselves that high.

  • amy

    Is it wrong of me to wish after they went public, people left FB? I really dislike FB and the only reason I have an account is because all of my friends and family do and it’s a way to stay in touch. I wish they would transition to G+ personally.

    • JosephMoreno

      I’m in the same position as you. I’m just waiting for the school year to end, and to switch schools to delete mine.

      • jvrcb17

        Well, I understand why you would want to leave facebook, but wouldn’t this be history repeating itself? There used to be a few social networks that were all destroyed by the monopoly that facebook created. If everyone leaves FB and enters G+, aren’t we just making another multi-billion dollar company even richer?

        I love Google, and everything they do, but I feel that the “division of labor” should be maintained

        • JosephMoreno

          I agree with everything you’re saying but my reason for leaving is that i loved how facebook was a year ago. it was more of a cool thing when we still had walls. It was cool not seeing everything my friends liked. And all im seeing lately is people posting a random picture and the caption like if:… , and my friends liking it. Also I don’t like how facebook bought instagram and lightbox, and are making it seem like everything they’re doing is the best feature in the world when really everything they’ve done lately is terrible.. Thats why I’m deleting mine. Dumb reasons i know, but i have enough people on other social networks so me deleting FB won’t matter much since I never even added my family. On twitter and G+ i just get a better experience.

    • Jonbo298

      Give it time. Facebook being public will see them attempting to gouge users at every turn. Ads galore. Degraded user experience (worse than it already is after Timeline). All in the name of profit. Then the bubble bursts and the decline increases immensely.

    • InyRules

      I have neither Facebook nor G+. I use Twitter exclusively for news and for following certain celebs. I’m in a rare situation where I don’t care about anyone from high school enough to get a Facebook, and I regularly hang out with all my college friends. My family is also limited to 4 people. Facebook has not won me over 🙂

      • Josh Groff

        I have twitter to follow devs and other important phone related stuff. (so basically as a news feed.)

        I have a G+ but have never used it, and my Facebook is for checking in on out of state family and friends(use it like once a week or so.) I was never really friends with anyone in high school that I actually still care to talk to.

    • as Shannon responded I am stunned that people able to make $8232 in a few weeks on the computer. did you read this webpage LazýCash5.Çom

  • haha nicely put together.

  • Jason Purp

    Fun fact: If you’re on Facebook and you go directly to another website from the same tab you had Facebook on, they will be able to track every website you go to in that tab and what you do on said website, for as long as that tab is open.

    • Jason Purp

      I love how everybody voted the post down

      • droidftw

        Because it is false.

        • irsl8er

          And Google doesn’t track you?

    • No, not really. Only some sites.

    • Liderc

      Google does this as well, so what?
