Facebook Now Has 250 Million Users

    July 17, 2009

It was just mere months ago that Facebook announced they had 200 million members worldwide. Well, today they’ve passed another milestone… 250 million people are now using the social networking site.

It should be noted that back in January Facebook only had 150 million users… feels kind of funny saying only 150 million.

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, updated the company blog with the following:

"So today as we celebrate our 250 millionth user, we are also continuing to develop Facebook to serve as many people in the world in the most effective way possible. This means reaching out to everyone across the world and making products that serve all of you, wherever you are—whether through Facebook Connect, new mobile products and the other things that we are building. We’re grateful to have all of you with us, and we look forward to helping connect the next quarter billion people on Facebook."

Below is a pretty neat map, which shows Facebook’s growth to 250 million users.

So Facebook is well on its way to 1 billion users… care to make a prediction on when this will happen? Tell us when you think it’ll happen.
