You know something’s beyond super red-hot when it becomes a verb or noun. “Pass me a Kleenex” or “Just Google It” or “I’ll Blackberry You Later”. Well, Facebook is becoming a verb, a noun, an adjective, etc. It seems everyone now has a Facebook account or is being pressured into getting one if you want to hang out with the cool kids. But how it did it happen? Is Mark Zuckerberg a genius, or the luckiest guy on earth other than Sergey Bryn, Larry Page and Mark Cuban. And as Facebook grows, could MySpace be the next Friendster? Do you think Rupert Murdoch has a Facebook account?
You want to hear some staggering Facebook numbers that came out of a jammed-packed, dot-com like press conference in San Francisco earlier today?
Facebook is growing by 100,000 new users a day, 50% of registered users come back every day, the service generates 40 billion page view a month (or 50 pages per user every day); it’s not the sixth-most popular site in the U.S.
Facebook is a online tidal wave flowing through cyberspace. Some people are suggesting it’s becoming the social networking OS as it launches Facebook Platform, which will allow other applications to tie into the Facebook landscape. Unreal, baby, unreal.
