It’s certainly come a long way with millions of users around the world, the opening of the Facebook Platform, and quite possibly a personal data gold mine. All Facebook, the unofficial Facebook resource, provides news, and more importantly, data on growth, demographics, pages, and applications. A lot of it is locked behind a not so pretty widget, but interesting nevertheless. The above graphic is a look at some of that data.
This is great, thanks for sharing! Fascinating especially to see the power of brands. I’ve heard many times that Coca-Cola is the most recognized brand worldwide, and this is further proof, even if it is taking 2nd place to the Obama brand in this particular arena.

Great visual! I’ve actually dropped of using my facebook a lot. It just seems too many applications that I get invited to by your friends, etc…too much to keep up with unless you’re in college or have a lot of free time on your hands…which is why I guess the 18 to 25 year old is 40% of facebook!
