Facebook: half a billion registered users

The social network provider Facebook says it now has more than half a billion registered users, after adding 100m in the last six months. As a designer I find the interface tidy but visually limiting. I suppose the emphasis is on content rather than appearance. Who knows how this may change in the future.  Personally I would like more control over the appearance of my pages, but as a social networking tool Facebook is a phenomenon.

Facebook said the number was “an important milestone” and added that it was “humbled and inspired” by the stories of its users, which it is asking people to share on the site.

The UK currently has around 26m Facebook users.
