Article at TechCrunch about the new Facebook Platform, that gives third-party developers access to the facebook API so that their applications can be integrated with the website. There's some pretty fascinating facts and figures there: "Facebook is growing 3% per week, which is 100,000 new users per day", it's the "6th most trafficked site in the U.S.", and "50% of registered users come back to the site every day." That's some impressive stuff.
I'm not usually a fan of social networking sites, but I have very quickly become hopelessly addicted to facebook. Of course, it helps that it's not hideously ugly like myspace (I do not understand how people can spend any significant length of time on that website). One of the main reasons that I don't post here much anymore is that slowly but surely my entire life is being moved over to facebook!
