It’s already confirmed that the most-known social networking website called Facebook reached 500 million users. Yes, you didn’t read wrong, the number is 500,000,000 users and the amazing part is that took it only six months to go from 400 million to 500 million.

The website launched in 2004 and until now more and more people around the world are sharing their personal information of any digital form – image, video and text. Although it has began as a photo gallery for friends, today’s Facebook is the second most frequently visited website after Google’s territory. Nowadays, people already use their facebook profile as motto or mood announcer. Thus it was presumed that there was a need for a blogging application coming out soon. Well, delay is over folks.

To celebrate the achievement of half a billion users, Mark Zuckerberg and his Harvard colleagues announced a new application called “Facebook Stories”. Well, it was expected to see such an application to offer more power to the users. For the first time, all registered members are allowed to promote themselves not only by their pictures, but also using written word to attract more visitors or friends-wannabe. According to Mr.Zuckerberg, these stories are going to be categorized by themes and location as to help us ‘make the world more open and connected.’ He also stated that he could never imagine all these ways people would use Facebook when he started six years ago. Who couldn’t?
