Facebook DOUBLES to 200 Million users in 8 months

April 8, 2009 by Andy Ebon


Here’s a statistic that should get your attention. Facebook, the online social community has rocketed from 100 Million users to 200 Million users since August 2008.

For the uninitiated, Facebook started as a strictly social community, but has added an array of business features in the last few months. Recently, I asked the question, “Should you consider advertising on Facebook?.

While that still may be an open question, I think it’s incumbent upon any reasonable person who is not signed up for a Facebook account, to do so now. If you’re signed up, but not active, then get active. If you’re active, socially, then begin to look at the business features for wedding marketing.

I can’t predict the long term future of Facebook, but I can see what the immediate trend is. If you’re a wedding marketer, I’ll see you there…
