Ever wonder just how many transactions social networking site Facebook handles in 20 minutes? No? Us either. However, a recently published report from analytics company Democracy UK — that describes exactly what happens in the aforementioned period of time on the site — has piqued our interest. On average:
1 million links are shared, 1.32 million photos are tagged, 1.48 million event invitations are sent out, 1.59 million wall posts are published, 1.85 million status updates are posted, 2.72 million photos are uploaded, 4.63 million messages are sent, and 10.21 million comments hit the site.
All of that, and more, happens every twenty minutes. Yikes. The published report also mentioned that Lady Gaga was the most Liked celebrity — Justin Bieber ranked an anemic 9th, just below the 8th place celebrity… Lil Wayne?
