It was a great news for Facebook this friday. Barely few months ago they were claiming they had 200 million users worldwide, now they have crossed another milestone. The current user base worldwide is around 250 million users. This clearly says that, Social media is growing like crazy.

According to Mark Zuckerberg in this official blog post commented  “So today as we celebrate our 250 millionth user, we are also continuing to develop Facebook to serve as many people in the world in the most effective way possible. This means reaching out to everyone across the world and making products that serve all of you, wherever you are—whether through Facebook Connect, new mobile products and the other things that we are building. We’re grateful to have all of you with us, and we look forward to helping connect the next quarter billion people on Facebook.”

Nowadays people are using the social media for everything, be its a company or an individual or a brand. I hope you are aware of the power of Twitter, I dont need to say about the United airlines incident and the song ” United breaks guitar” . So if there is any delay in air service or anything that matters, people don’t hesitate to tell it to the world through social media. Thanks to smart phones.

Companies need to listen to social media, they need to hear what the customers or the prospective customers are talking about your brand. If there is any negative comments are being said about your company or brand, you need to act immediately. I will write an another post, about the social media in detail.

Do you have an account in Facebook?
