Considering this God forsaken planet has 7.2 billion of us floating around, 2bn is not impressive for a service that supposedly caters to EVERYONE and is the 'go-to' for social involvement.

FB sucks tho. No flow, convoluted and total waste of time.

I hate facebook. For something ascribed to be a part of "social networking", it is decidedly anti-social and only further promotes fake behavior. Most of it is a toxic cesspool filled with completely ignorant people. Plus Zuckerberg is a real douchebag.

Zuck is a total douche! I agree!!! Not that bright, a bit of book smarts, and a thief of FB's design and build!
