Social Media

Happy sixth birthday Facebook!

Last week there was a little birthday party over at Facebook. The social network is now six years old.

And the quite frankly stunning fact is that Facebook now has over 400 million users. That’s  doubled in the last year alone. It’s more people than live in the US, the UK and Australia, all added together.

New Navigation tools

To mark the anniversary, Facebook unveiled a new set of navigation tools. They’re all about improving user experience and have been at the direct request of consumers.

The changes include a drop down menu on the member homepage that lists the latest notifications, requests and messages.

Users can also see a red bubble on the left hand corner of the page, which lets them know that one of their friends has written on another’s wall or tagged them in a photo.

Let’s Celebrate!

On the Facebook blog founder Mark Zuckerberg said “After the launch we’re going to celebrate with a Hackathon – an event where all of us stay up all night coding and building out our new ideas for our next wave of products for you.”

Oh those crazy guys, they sure know how to have a party…

You can of course integrate your WebEden website with Facebook (and Twitter). This can be an important way to reach out to new users. Here’s some advice on how to do that.

Where will Facebook be in another year. A billion users? A new world order? Another terrible party? Leave us a comment below.
