When will Facebook have 1 Billion Users?

facebook_crowdFacebook reported 900 million registered users, so we’ve got a question: when will Facebook have Billion Users? Back in February, some analysts attempted to predict the month of this billion user registration, and perhaps they were very close to the truth, but maybe not.

Yesterday we got new information provided by the Irish bookmaking agency Paddy Power: August or September.

According to the official website of Paddy Power, the Irish believe that Facebook will reach one billion users in the first half of 2013, but after a sudden stunning registrations rise in this month, they revised calculations and came up with a very interesting view:

  • April: 25 to 1
  • May: 12 to 1
  • June: 6 to 1
  • July 11 to 4
  • August 5 to 2
  • September 3 to 1
  • October 5 to 1
  • November: 12 to 1
  • December: 12 to 1
  • The first half of 2013: 9 to 1


I wonder, if Facebook prepares some special gift for a billion registered user =D
