Facebook currently has over 500 million users and that number keeps growing daily. The infographic below was designed by Online Dating University and outlines how Facebook affects our more personal side of sharing, and our relationships.
The numbers are really pretty interesting when you think about it. Women use Facebook more than men and have since it started. The number of singles and the number of married are almost the same, with a 5 or so percent variance. Only 3 out of 5 Facebook users even show their relationship status at all, and the largest number of those users live in the U.S., South Africa, Iceland, the U.K. and Canada.
You can bet that all of this is being heavily scrutinized by brands and marketers vying for your Social Networked attention, and by Facebook itself. It kind of makes you think about how you might want to set up your personal info and privacy settings. I have to admit that I haven’t really set mine to be Mr. Secrecy though.
