Facebook reaches 750 million users worldwide
The social networking giant hits another milestone.
It doesn't feel like a year ago that every phone box, hoarding and bus-side were splashed with The Social Network tagline: "You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies". And yet - ongoing legal disputes with the Winkelovoss twins not withstanding - Facebook marches on, reportedly having just clocked 750 million users worldwide.
The extra 250 million users have appeared in just under a year - a massive leap in Facebook's userbase. By comparison, after launching in Summer 2004 it took Facebook six years to reach the 500 million mark.
