"Facebook has 500 employees and $100 million in annual revenue, compared to Google's 17,000 employees and $16 million in annual revenue."

Facebook does not have more revenue than Google.

Facebook is reported to have $100 million in annual revenue by several reputable sources (search for Facebook annual revenue).

Google's 2007 annual revenue was $16.6 Billion according to their income statement posted on Yahoo Web Link. It looks like PAWeekly didn't notice that these reports are in the thousands.

Palo Altan,

I do. Lots of people know it is a fad. In one or two years it is going to be, "face-what??"

It is myspace and nothing more. It appeals to the demographic that will drop you like a hot potato for the next "new thing."

Smoke and mirrors. Wait for the boat to sink.
