Everyone knows that Facebook has become absolutely massive, but it’s easy to lose sight of just how big a number like 250 million is. Buzzpoint, a social media marketing firm based out of Los Angeles, has put together an impressive visualization that shows off just how large Facebook has grown. The company has estimated the current and past Facebook usage statistics using available data and plotted a number of graphs tracking its progress over the last three years. I’ve broken the image (which is quite massive on its own) into a few chunks below, and you can download the whole thing here.

Fascinating. However, the real question is how much of that traffic are they able to monetize?

Facebook's targeted ads are based on one of the best engines I've ever seen. It actually works and sends relevant content.

In 5 short years Facebook has literally killed Myspace by simply doing it all harder/better/faster/stronger.

Those numbers may be off....I have 3 facebook accounts, one personal, one gaming, another gaming......and there are a LOT of people playing games on FB (Mafia Wars alone has several million users everyday)

Yeah, I'm confident that Facebook has a LOT of multi accounts. But still, that IS huge.
