Facebook Growth Continuing, Surpasses 150 Million Monthly Active Users

Another 20 days, another 10 million Facebook users.

It’s only been a couple weeks since Facebook surpassed the 140 million user mark, but this morning, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook’s audience has now crossed the 150 million monthly active user mark. If Facebook were a country, it would now be the 8th most populous in the world.

150 million marks another major milestone in Facebook’s continued growth, which has been skyrocketing both in the US and abroad. At this rate, Inside Facebook expects Facebook could cross 200 million monthly active users as early as April, or in about 90 days.

In addition, Inside Facebook has prepared resources for businesses interested in learning more about how to reach and engage Facebook’s large and growing user base. Further details are available below:

    Well, this is great. We’ve got numbers, in terms of raw traffic, but next time, we need to see engagement stats, and some tracking of platform monetization, in terms of shifting of cost of CPC/CPA metrics. C’mon team IF, dig deeper!
