In February 2004, Facebook started out as a site where people could stay in touch with friends and reconnect with old ones, used mostly amongst students. Today, Facebook has grown to be not only one of the most popular social media sites out there but also one of the most important. Facebook has created 235, 644 new jobs, contributed over 15 billion dollars in wages and benefits to the U.S. economy, as well as install 20 million apps per day.[/intro]

Taking a look at January and February, there is a 267% growth for the number of visitors to mobile apps, and that’s just between one month. If Facebook can grow that quickly in that short of a time, it is interesting to think about where it will be in just a year or so.
