Facebook statistics


Nick Ellery’s post alerted me to the incredible Facebook statistics (about half way down the article) that are (probably) driving them into the ground. Here’s a taste: 300,000 images are uploaded to Facebook every second. How do you pay for the infrastructure that supports that? Or a trillion page views per year. That’s serious load. How do you finance it? Advertising? Yeah, right. Whilst Facebook reportedly brings in $265M in revenue, the conjecture is that that ‘aint enough to pay the bills. Anyone feel like chipping in :-)

But perhaps we shouldn’t worry. Facebook is getting the thumbs up from some about its revamped Connect platform. But hang on, how will that make any money…
