The 6 years and so old company Facebook has hit officially a major milestone: 500 Millions active users. Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg announced the news via a blog post.

Looking at the largest countries in terms of population we see China #1 with around 1,3 billion people and India with 1,81 billion. This makes Facebook stands 3rd if it was a real country, USA stands forth with 309 million people.

Facebook has also started an app to celebrate this occasion called Facebook stories where users can share their own story of using Facebook. Users in the Arab world are estimated to be above 15  17 million according to inside sources.

Facebook is poised to be the next Google where they now have  the data of 500 million users (might hit a billion in less than a year) and a vast amount of web data via Facebook like button, thus might make adwords absolute one day!

Facebook has faced recently increased criticism because its privacy policy and in the Muslim world because of the “draw the Prophet Mohamad PBH- pages which resulted in launching Millatfacebook the site achieved unprecedented growth.
