Facebook: The World's Largest Country (Save China)

It took as many as 38 years for radio to reach 50 million users, 13 for television, 4 for the internet, while it took about 3 years for Facebook to reach 100 million. On June 30, 2012 Facebook reached 955 million monthly active users (MAUs).

Facebook is now the Internet’s most visited website in many countries around in the world and in terms of monthly time spent per person, Facebook is in the undisputed world-wide leader. In the United States, Facebook users are spending more time on the site than on Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft websites combined.

Facebook’s dominance of the SNS space in particular is overwhelming since 92% of all SNS users in the US use Facebook. The site co-founded by Mark Zuckerberg has more unique visitors than all the other major SNS sites combined (Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, Tumblr, Google+, and Pinterest).
