A Scary Look At How Busy You Are On Facebook

It seems that as of late, we’ve been seeing a lot more focus on using Twitter in the classroom (and for professional development) than Facebook. That said, Facebook is still out there, and in force. Tons of people are still using it – including many of your students, despite the “reports” (Buzzfeed articles) that say Facebook has jumped the shark, and kids don’t think it is cool anymore. Facebook sees about 757 million people sign on each day – and that’s nothing to sneeze at! The handy infographic below shows you just how big Facebook still is. Take a few of these fun facts to your next summer BBQ!

    What part of this is this scary? Maybe the daily compromised accounts? Also, according to Facebook, they had 829 million daily active users on average in June 2014.

      I was thinking the same thing, Justin. What’s “scary” about it? The English teacher in me is being (probably) overly critical about the title not agreeing with the main idea. In fact, the author ends with “Take a few of these fun facts to your next summer BBQ!”

      The facts are interesting, though. The title is just a little sensationalized.
