No doubt you've already heard this morning that Facebook has backed down on its new terms of service, largely as a result of user comments. I did find it interesting that Zuckerberg said today that "if Facebook were a country, it would be the sixth most populated country in the world." A little more than a month ago, if Facebook were a country, it would be the eighth most populated country in the world. Is Facebook really growing that fast? I know it seems that way to me at least--in the last few weeks I've gotten so many requests from grade school friends, high school friends, and even people that didn't like me at all. That's a weird phenomenon unto itself, but still, it's pretty evident that the Facebookiverse is growing at an impressive rate.
