Astounded by some of the stats swimming around about Facebook, Shel Israel decided to get the info straight from the horse’s mouth.  Here’s what Facebook told him:

  • Over 150,000 registrants daily. That’s 1 million a week since January.
  • 35 million users today.  Of course that number will be off a million one week from today.
  • Half of users are outside college.  That number was zero in Sept. 2006.
  • 0ver 40 billion page views in May 2007
  • The average visitor stays 20 minutes
  • Most growth is among people over age 25
  • 47,000 Facebook groups.
  • #1 photo sharing app on the web. 2.7 billion photos on site.
  • More than 2,000 applications. The Top 10 are: Top Friends, Video, Graffiti, MyQuestions, iLike, FreeGifts, X Me, Superpoke!, Fortune Cookie & Horoscopes. The smallest of these has over 4.5 million users.

Hat tip: a note on Andrew Smith’s profile on, you guessed it, Facebook.
