Today is the day the social network is floated on the Wall Street Stock Exchange at a value of a staggering $100 Billion.

We all know that Facebook is a rather popular platform and is widely used globally.  But today is a special day for the worldwide phenomenon, today is the day the social network is floated on the Wall Street Stock Exchange at a value of a staggering $100 Billion. This will net Mark Zuckerberg a timely fortune of around $10 Billion!

To put this in perspective, Facebook will now be valued at more than Mcdonalds and Yahoo!  All from an idea which was developed in 2004 for use as a University Networking platform.

There are more than 800 million active users and more than 50% of active users log on to Facebook in any given day

On average, more than 250 million photos are uploaded per day

More than 350 million active users currently access Facebook through their mobile devices
