Facebook Hits 750 Million Users; Zuckerberg Yawns

mark-zuckerbergDuring today’s ongoing product announcement at Facebook headquarters, CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg somewhat casually mentioned that the site now has 750 million users … and also mentioned that he doesn’t care.

Zuckerberg said Facebook didn’t bother to report when it hit the 750 million mark because it’s a metric that really doesn’t matter.

“You don’t measure the Internet’s value based on how many people use it,” he said moments earlier. “You measure it based on what you can do with it, on how it impacts the economy and things like that.”

While Facebook’s userbase continues to grow, sharing activity on the site is growing even more rapidly. Zuckerberg also announced that Facebook users are now sharing four billion things every day on Facebook.

The product announcement continues right now, and you can follow along via our live blogging coverage by Danny Sullivan.
