But can I wipe my ass with it?

Stats on Facebook, taken from Facebook. (for this post “Facebook” means all social media…just for arguments sake, or whatever. Like it matters)


  • More than 500 million active users
  • 50% of our active users log on to Facebook in any given day
  • Average user has 130 friends
  • People spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook
  • There are over 900 million objects that people interact with (pages, groups, events and community pages)
  • Average user is connected to 80 community pages, groups and events
  • Average user creates 90 pieces of content each month
  • More than 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photo albums, etc.) shared each month.
  • More than 70 translations available on the site
  • About 70% of Facebook users are outside the United States
  • Over 300,000 users helped translate the site through the translations application
  • More than one million developers and entrepreneurs from more than 180 countries
  • Every month, more than 70% of Facebook users engage with Platform applications
  • More than 550,000 active applications currently on Facebook Platform
  • More than one million websites have integrated with Facebook Platform
  • More than 150 million people engage with Facebook on external websites every month
  • Two-thirds of comScore’s U.S. Top 100 websites and half of comScore’s Global Top 100 websites have integrated with Facebook
  • There are more than 150 million active users currently accessing Facebook through their mobile devices.
  • People that use Facebook on their mobile devices are twice as active on Facebook than non-mobile users.
  • There are more than 200 mobile operators in 60 countries working to deploy and promote Facebook mobile products.
  • but at the end of the day…what is Facebook good for? absolutely Nothing!

    Bottom line: “If I can’t wipe my ass with it, I don’t need it.”

    Right? Right! (I still have a profile, I just don’t use it much…a Facebook profile is  just something you need to have…like toilet paper. It’s ubiquitous. A necessary evil…Nothing anyone can do about it.)


    With numbers like these, it’s not likely to go the Betamax route. So it’s gonna be here for a while.

    Have a Good Night.
