Just how big is Facebook? Consider this... as Facebook turns five, from August of 2008 until April of 2009 (8 months), Facebook grew from 100 million active users, to 200 million. Right now daily estimated growth is exceeding 500,000 new users each day, or about 10 million every 20 days!

While Facebook is primarily a personal adventure, a place for you and your friends can catch up with one another (mingling online), in the coming weeks, Sienna Creative will show how you can make Facebook work for you business — and place you in touch (personally) with your constituents.
