It’s a funny thing, Facebook. You think other social media channels are taking over, but when you look into its power, it’s staggering! Did you know:

  1. Every second there are 20,000 people on Facebook. Users spend 21 minutes per day on average on Facebook. This is amazing when you think, some of only sere our kids for that long! And, if you’re on your smartphone, on average you’ll check Facebook 14 times a day.

  2. There’re 500,000 Facebook ‘likes’ every minute. That means in each hour 30M posts have the thumbs up.

  3. You can change your language on Facebook to ‘pirate’.

  4. Al Pacino was the first ‘face’ on Facebook.

  5. Facebook is primarily blue as Mark Zuckerburg suffers from red-green colour-blindness.

  6. 1 in 3 people feel dissatisfied with their lives after visiting Facebook and I’m sure the fact 5% of Brits use Facebook whilst having sex, doesn’t help!

  7. Facebook has been banned in China since 2009.

  8. You can’t block Mark Zuckerburg on Facebook.

  9. Mark seems to know what he’s doing as he bought Instagram for $1B and WhatsApp for $19B – bargin!

So if any of the other platforms are taking over, Mark isn’t losing sleep! As you sip something cold tonight and ‘like’ away, know you’re in good company with about half the globe!
