Facebook Surpasses 150 Million Users per Month

Today the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, announced:
Facebook’s audience has now crossed the 150 million monthly active user mark. If Facebook were a country, it would now be the 8th most populous in the world. From Inside Facebook.

While many small business owners are still reluctant to jump into Facebook, surely gaining access to 150 million people on the web is nothing to scoff at!

Granted a large portion of Facebook users are younger citizens, but recent demographics from Facebook show a substantial growth in the 25+ age group.

So if you're not accessing this totally free source of potential visitors to your website, why not? Sign up for an account, then get started with a page for your small business today.

A good example of what you can do with a page can be seen on the one we created to promote Dominica, and the growth from 0 to 3,700 fans in just a few months is a testament to the potential Facebook offers.
