The best part for the company is that it is still growing! But until Facebook goes public, most probably in 2012, the exact figures cannot be known.

Posted a few days back but still interesting enough to mention. It will give you enough reasons to be atleast mildly skeptical of Facebook Places and the nuances attached with it. Do give it a read if you are thinking of boarding the Locate-Me-Whereve -I-am-Train.

The launch video has already been greeted with many raised eyebrows, but without sounding like a cynic, have a read through to what actually unfolded for these diners.

Original Post -
