RIP Facebook

Facebook has over 500 million active users.207 million of these are in the U.S. ! in every 13 people across the whole world has a facebook account and close to half of all these people are logged in at any given time. 48% of 18-35 year olds have a facebook account.

In my opinion i would think the facebook will only grow and grow because the introduction of facebook on smartphones has gotten massive and with so many people owning a smartphone and with facebook making their site smartphone friendly i would say that in time facebook will grow and will become a very good marketing and advertising tool if used correctly. 28% of all facebook users are using it through their smartphones.

Facebook had a record breaking 750 million photos uploaded during the new years week end. This is by far more than any other site in the world.

So based an these figures alone i woulsd think that facebook has a few years left before it becomes RIP and with their numbers growing yearly I would find it hard to believe if it were to cease to exist any time soon.!!

Accenture match play 2012

Hunter Mahan won this years Accenture match play with a 3 up advantage over Rory Mcilroy who pushed hard in the back nine after a disappointing mistake on the 7th hole let Mahan get the advantage over Mcilroy. Mcilroy left his second shot to the par 4, 7th shot, so did Mahan but Mcilroy also left his chip shot short and it rolled bach down the bank to where it already was, Mahan landed his on the green and this is where he gained his momentum to go on and win.

Rory played Lee Westwood in his semi-final match where he was 3 down after five but was able to claw it back and in the end beat Lee 3 up with a solid victory.

Tiger Woods had an early exit, He was beaten by the American Nick Watney in the second round. Tiger missed a 5foot putt to take the round to extra holes.

This weeks PGA event is taking place in Florida for the Honda classic. It is a big name event and will have the world number 1 Luke Donald teeing up along with Rory Mcilroy, Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods,  Keegan Bradley.

Hopefully this sunday will hold as much entertainment as last sunday on the course.
