According to an insightful new report from the folks at Arbitron, Inc. and Edison Research, Faceboook has secured a major milestone in the United States.
Today, more than half of all Americans (at least those over the age of 12) now have Facebook accounts. The company says it de-activates approximately 20,000 profiles daily due to underage users.
By a margin of 51%, Facebook has officially captured a majority of the United States population – a massive spike over the 8% recorded just 36 months ago.
The study, which was conducted in January of 2011, underscores the total growth of the hugely popular social networking platform.
Facebook presently boasts in excess of 200 million registered users actively engaged in one of Facebook’s many platforms, an increase from just 65 million twelve months ago.
Edison Research will release a full report on its research in a webinar scheduled for April 5th.
