This year, 2010 Facebook confirmed that they have reached 500 million users worldwide. If it is a country, it would have been the third most populous country in the world.

According to Facebook's statistics each user has an average of 130 friends and shares about 70 bits of personal information and that includes home movies and family photos.

Since it's launching in 2004, Facebook had become a global phenomenon that is shaping the way people communicate. In the Philippines alone where Friendster has a strong foothold before, Facebook had overrun Friendster ten times.

"People have really gotten connected, not only sharing more information and different kinds but being more open and with more people. and that social norm is just something that's changed over time," says Marck Zuckerberg, Facebook's CEO.

This year a new movie will feature the story of Facebook, so don't forget to watch The Social Network when it hits theaters.
