Notable News – Facebook Reaches 350 Million Users


If you recently logged into Facebook, you might have noticed a message from founder Mark Zuckerberg.

In the message he noted Facebook wanted to change a key privacy setting and remove “regions” altogether.

The plan we’ve come up with is to remove regional networks completely and create a simpler model for privacy control where you can set content to be available to only your friends, friends of your friends, or everyone.

A key reason for this policy change is the continued growth of Facebook subscribers who now top 350,000,000 world-wide.  It was less than 90 days ago that Facebook reached the 300 million marker.

If you’re not on Facebook as an individual or a business, you are missing one of the greatest opportunities of the modern era.  Facebook can no longer be ignored.  I predict Twitter will be the next social media platform to reach this level.

The numbers don’t lie.  I tell people social media is like “web presence” was about a decade ago.  People will notice you for having a social media presence now.  In a few years that won’t be noteworthy.  Whoever executes best is going to be talked about then.

If you’re ignoring social media because you think it’s a passing fad, you are sorely mistaken.  I talk to people every day who once thought that and now are trying to figure out how to get themselves or their business involved.  I personally helped someone yesterday set up two Facebook fan pages because she believes what I’m saying.  This person is in a particularly competitive business and quickly realized the truth I am speaking.

350 million Facebook users can’t be wrong.  You know what tool to use and you know why.  I can teach you how.
