Not to mention all of the people who create multiple accounts so that they can pump up there 'friends' activity in Zynga games, like Farmville.
Not that any people I am related to would do such a thing,

Sorry for the off topic response.

Just on the Facebook volume of users, these days there are many companies utilising Facebook for a variety of reasons.
That artificially inflates the person user numbers, not to mention that there are a vast numbers of fake and duplicate user numbers.

I am not a great fan of FB but I have an account and I have 'test' account (no friends) that I can use to test the security and visibility on my normal accounts.
I also have an account for my company.
Three accounts for myself.
I don't believe I am the only one with multiple accounts, which would suggest that the numbers are artificially inflated to some extent.

Facebook has a little less than 1 billion users. That's a pretty impressive number... If Facebook were a country, it'd be the 3rd largest country on the planet.

But, even so, it means that 5/6 of the world are not using it.

This is the 2nd survey in 2 days I tried to respond to that was users
FB only..

1st it was a security requirement of a customer to not have
connections to social sites...
Later my kids said "Nooooooooo!".
I guess FB has become the one & only...
