Facebook has announced that it has attained the 500 million user-milestone. This is indeed a great landmark for a Website that is still less than ten years old. The remarkable achievement of the world’s number one social networking site was boosted by around 100 million new user registration in the last six months.

Perhaps a measure of the tough times that lie ahead for Facebook can be seen in other social networks such as Bebo and MySpace, both of which have been struggling recently to maintain their user base and earlier achievements.
