Facebook reaches the 200 Million User Mark

Facebook and Frederick Maryland Small Business...


What does one have to do with the other?

Unless you've been living in a cave, you've heard of MySpace... well MySpace is for our children and FACEBOOK is for US. Social Media is changing... well EVERYTHING

Social Media isn't only changing the Internet, it's putting newspapers out of business, forcing the TV and Cable News to incorporate it (or else get left in the dust), Social Media is making conventional Advertising OBSOLETE.

Facebook just broke 200,000,000 users... And it's now offering Business Accounts!

Facebook's total web traffic, the number of users using facebook daily is, at the moment, a third of the total numbers of people using Google, according to WebProNews, an industry online newsletter.

If Facebook's growth continues the way it has been, perhaps it should be considered Google's greatest threat (when I say threat, I mean competition) - maybe not in general search, but in terms of where advertisers are spending their money. Certainly in the foreseeable future, people will continue using Google to search, and advertisers will continue to spend money advertising with them (probably even more now that they are doing more targeting), but Facebook also targets, and it's not going to be overlooked.
If you own a business and you don't take advantage of the internet fastest growing place to advertise... you deserve to have your competition 'clean your clock'! Facebook Business Pages are FREE (and they get a third of the traffic that behemoth Google gets)

Frederick Web Promotions is now offering to create, manage and maintain small business Facebook pages. Company Facebook Pages content is now search-able from Google, personal facebook pages are not. Company Facebook Page Ghostwriting is now available from Frederick Web Promotions

Facebook is Your Father's (and Mother's) Social Network

Facebook (and other social networks) has been skewing older for a while, but the trend has been "massive" in the past six months, according to InsideFacebook.com. In the past two months alone the number of new members over 35 has doubled. Marketers take note: the median age is now over 25, and the largest single group 35 to 44.

Women over 55 remain the fastest growing group, and growth among the teen and college-age set has been relatively paltry. In absolute numbers there are now even slightly more members between the ages of 45 and 65 than there are 13-to 17-year-olds.
Looking at Facebook US audience growth over the last 180 days, it’s clear that Facebook is seeing massive increases in adoption amongst users 35-65. The fastest growing demographic on Facebook is still women over 55 — there are now nearly 1.5 million of them active on Facebook each month.
The biggest growth in terms of absolute new users over the last six month came amongst users 35-44. Over 4 million more US women 35-44 and nearly 3 million more US men 35-44 used Facebook in March 2009 compared to September 2008.
