10 million comments, 1.5 million wall posts, 1.8 million status updates…


We know Facebook handles a lot of data per day, but if you capsule the data transactions to every 20mins, the numbers become truly astonishing. A stats report published by analytics company Democracy UK has us gawking at what takes place every 20 mins on Facebook (thanks BGR!):

1 million links are shared, 1.32 million photos are tagged, 1.48 million event invitations are sent out, 1.59 million wall posts are published, 1.85 million status updates are posted, 2.72 million photos are uploaded, 4.63 million messages are sent, and 10.21 million comments hit the site.

Holy mother. The report also has other unsettling stats, such as Lady Gaga was the most liked celebrity with 24,712,169 ‘likes’, followed by Emiem (23,729,700 likes) and Megan Fox (19,425,325 likes).

Facebook really needs a ‘dislike’ feature, let’s see those numbers match up then!

    Facebook is a MEGA Waste of Time! Don’t people have a better use for their time and (alleged) brains?
    Sad state of affairs in my opinion.
