Why 900M isn’t the only number that matters to Facebook


You’ve no doubt heard or read in the past few weeks that Facebook’s hyperinflated valuation heading into its IPO has everything to do with its promise, and very little to do with its actual profits. That much is true.

But apart from the fact that it has more than 900 million users, a lot of other important numbers never get mentioned. Here are some numbers we know about Facebook’s infrastructure that also speak to its promise as a company that could generate a lot of money.

Is Facebook actually worth $100 billion? Who knows. But it’s a company with so much data and with its finger on the pulse of how web infrastructure works. Managed properly, there’s an awful lot there to work with as Facebook tries to figure out new ways to make a dollar.
