From Inside Facebook …
Facebook has hit the 175,000,000 active user mark, just 5 weeks after it hit 150 million users in January. At this rate, Facebook has been growing by well over 600,000 users per day over the last several weeks, continuing the company’s torrid growth pace.
If Facebook were a country, it would now be the 6th most populous in the world.
So … do we think social networks have a place in schools?
