Facebook announced today that they have now reached 500 million users worldwide. It's estimated that on average 700,000 users join the website every day.
The social networking website has seen massive growth since its launch in 2004. Facebook is now so large, that if it were a country, it would now be the 3rd biggest country in the world, behind only China and India.
Facebook is now aiming to double its membership to one billion users. Facebook believe this growth will come from India and Brazil where the website is currently underperforming.
