Facebook now has 350m users – and there’s no point in advertising

Read a very interesting article today at the gaurdian, I had no idea that facebook now has more than 350 million users. I was also quite surprised to read the information about about profits (or lack thereof) with facebook and twitter. It seems that very few people click banner ads, and that is a way that many online social networks intended to make money.

Personally I think the little branded apps like the games on facebook and taking them to mobile phones with embedded adverting, like the farmville game using purity milk or the cafe game having decorations with pepsi or coke may be a much better way to monetize these networks.
