Ben Lorica at O'Reilly Radar has a great post with a really interesting set of data about the continued global growth of Facebook. Quite often we focus on where the leading edge is moving, many of whom have already left Facebook. But we also need to recognise that Facebook is still growing.
One interesting tidbit was that Facebook has more members in Canada than it does in the whole of Asia, despite increased growth in Asia. As well as the data, check out the comments at the bottom of Ben's post. There are lots of well informed comments and responses.
My latest personal brush with Facebook has been via my 16 year old son who is standing for election for the position of President of the student body at his sixth-form college, he and all the other candidates have created Facebook groups as part of their campaigns, operating as a place for campaign photos, outrageous claims, and spin.
