I’ve started to get really interested in facebook and its power over everyone’s daily routine. I thought it’d be funny to plot a graph of facebook users against the population to see where the amount of users on the social networking site outnumbered real people on Earth.

With a LOT of maths I figured out the equations for population growth and facebook popularity and then placed both in a graph together. I found out in the year 2030 there will be 8.052 billion users on facebook and 8 billion people on Earth.

Its interesting to think of a different reality where facebook users were more real than people.

Til next time
