6 New Facts on Facebook’s 10th Anniversary


On Facebook’s 10th birthday Pew reported that “64% of Facebook users visit the site on a daily basis” and it is still the “dominant social networking platform, used by 57% of all American adults and 73% of all those ages 12-17.” Pew Research Center went to describe these 6 new facts about Facebook:

  1. Some users dislike certain aspects of Facebook, but fear of missing out on social activities (or “FOMO”) isn’t one of them.
  2. Women and men often have varying reasons for why they use Facebook – but everything starts with sharing and laughs.
  3. Half of all adult Facebook users have more than 200 friends in their network.
  4. 12% of Facebook users say that someone has asked them to “unfriend” a person in their network.
  5. Facebook users “like” their friends’ content and comment on photos relatively frequently, but most don’t change their own status that often.
  6. Half of internet users who do not use Facebook themselves live with someone who does.

This Pew Report shows how Social Media continues to change, but it is clearly easier to study after the fact from a historical perspective.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
