As anticipated, Facebook filed its initial public offering late last night seeking $5 billion in funding. Inside its filed prospectus, Facebook revealed some great statistics; like how the company had reached 845 million monthly active users by December 2011 and how they shared 100 billion friendships.
Facebook is set to reach one billion active users by August of this year, according to research from iCrossing. Facebook, comfortably the world's largest social network, currently has in excess of 800 million active users.
While Facebook is still experiencing user growth, having reached 687 million monthly active users at the start of this month, this growth rate has been lower than normal for the second consecutive month, according to Inside Facebook.
