Mashable has declared the population of Facebook – measured in users who have logged in at least once in the last 30 days – is now 750 million.

Much has been made of looking at Facebook as though it was a country, so you could compare it with others to see which countries have the largest population.

So I thought it was notable that this latest figure exceeds the population of the entire G7 – the (misnomer) Group of 7 most industrialized nations (notwithstanding the latest economic wreckage) – France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, United States and Canada.

The population of the G7 is 744,342,375, according to Wikipedia.

Of course Facebook has some work to catch up to India, China or the OECD, but at this trajectory, it doesn’t seem that crazy.

    Very interesting, the population of Facebook grows rapidly through out the year. I think we should make an infograph to all the social networking sites.
