For those who thought that Facebook was beginning to lose steam, and members, to the new kid on the block, Twitter, reports of Facebook’s demise could be premature. Facebook announced yesterday that they’d hit the 200 million mark in terms of members.
According to figures released by comScore, Facebook has increased its memberbase by 500,000 members per day.
Far from sitting on its laurels, Facebook is using this news to promote itself and celebrate with a new feature dedicated to how Facebook has helped people. The new feature is called Facebook For Good.
Whether the news of Facebook scoring its 200 millionth member will curb the reports of Twitter taking its crown or not, it does show that Facebook is still a force to be reckoned with. Although many businesses are still failing to use Facebook for their SEO and web promotional efforts, in contrast to Twitter, which seems almost ‘designed’ for such work.
