Facebook as a tech company has established a solid place in the world of social networking. With millions of users at home and from around the globe it is one of the most popular websites on the web today. According to a new infographic published almost a week ago by Visual.ly explains what activity is generated on the social channel in a minute.

So on any given day 757 million people logon onto Facebook from a laptop, PC, tablet or smartphone. What are these users doing exactly? According to the visual graphic, the Like and Share button gets viewed 15,277,777 on other websites. An astounding 243,055 photos are uploaded every minute. Hard to imagine physically how that happens in such a short span of time.

As notorious and well-known the company is it has become a custom to have controversies come to light since its founding. The settlements, the lawsuits and the scrutiny around privacy settings seem to never go away fully.

The latest campaign floating around is called “99 Days of Freedom”, which encourages users to quit the platform and follow up with a happiness survey. This initiative is headed by a Dutch nonprofit called Just B.V., according to a Forbes.com report.
Elsewhere 500 accounts are added every minute, so 30,000 accounts are added in an hour. And that number jumps significantly if you factor 24 hours later.

Precisely 150,000 messages are sent along with 3,298,611 items are shared on Facebook. The equivalent of 323 days of YouTube videos are viewed on Facebook, which is a crazy statistic. Finally, 50,000 links are shared on the platform.

Can the growth come to a standstill? Not as a long as an internet connection and consumers continue to adopt technology into their daily lives. The only way in a supposed decline in the regular use ofa social network will come of the expense of something else coming along or compromising the trust with its user base.
