50% of U.S. Population is Using Facebook


Austin, Texas, March 30, 2011 – Here’s something to update on a Facebook status: More than half of the U.S. population over age 12 has a Facebook Account. This feat is especially incredible when one figures that just 3 short years ago, only 8% of this segment of the population was on Facebook.

Now, there are over 600 million Facebook users worldwide.

Facebook is a social networking site that allows individuals to like, poke and follow every detail of their family and friends’ lives. As well as providing a platform to look at pictures or share videos, Facebook has also been instrumental in some serious issues as well, from politics to world affairs in the Middle East.

But probably one of the most important impacts of Facebook is the business opportunity that Facebook presents to small businesses.

“When you take into account Facebook’s fan base both in the U.S. and worldwide as well, no other social media site connects this many people together,“ says Curt Maly, president of Black Box Social Media, a social media optimization consulting company that gained recent popularity by helping others get their hacked Facebook fan pages back. It’s no wonder that savvy business owners are using Facebook to grow site traffic.
