There is a difference between 'users' and 'active users' though:

2011 – Facebook has seen amazing growth in the past 12 months with now over 640 million users, 50% of active users logging in each day and 65 million users accessing the site through a mobile device. The site has now overtaken Google as the no 1 site visited on the web globally!

  • There are more than 250 million active users currently accessing Facebook through their mobile devices.
  • People that use Facebook on their mobile devices are twice as active on Facebook than non-mobile users.
  • There are more than 200 mobile operators in 60 countries working to deploy and promote Facebook mobile products

Facebook to assemble global team of ‘diplomats’

With 70 percent of its more than 600 million members outside the United States, Facebook is creating its own foreign service. It is hiring a network of ambassadors worldwide to monitor the local political landscape and act as multilingual, TV-friendly communicators in countries and for cultures that, in many cases, have very different values and laws about privacy and personal communications than the U.S.

The new international jobs are part of a larger push by Facebook to beef up government relations both in the U.S. and abroad.
