Facebook – 350 Million Users

Mark Zuckerberg announced that over 350 million people have signed up to Facebook. In his blog to users Mark states that they will be making plans  ‘to remove regional networks completely and create a simpler model for privacy control where you can set content to be available to only your friends, friends of your friends, or everyone.’ The company started the year with 150 million monthly actives, and has gained near 50 percent penetration levels in some countries.

Changes expected:

Since this update will remove regional networks and create some new settings, in the next couple of weeks we’ll ask you to review and update your privacy settings. You’ll see a message that will explain the changes and take you to a page where you can update your settings. When you’re finished, we’ll show you a confirmation page so you can make sure you chose the right settings for you. As always, once you’re done you’ll still be able to change your settings whenever you want.

Thanks for being a part of making Facebook what it is today, and for helping to make the world more open and connected.

Mark Zuckerberg
