Facebook Has More Users Than The Net Did In 2004

No, not the schlocky Sandra Bullock thriller. The entire internet. Those are some sobering figures, because even if folks are threatening to quit Facebook over privacy issues, it means that it could take a long time for them to all drain away.

The figures are courtesy of Pingdom, which notes that back in 2004, the internet userbase numbered some 757 million folks. Facebook claims a userbase of some 800 million people today, or more than the internet-using population of North America and Europe combined -- and far more than we can manage down in this corner of the world.
