How Does Facebook Make Money?

by admin on April 26, 2011

Facebook is one of the fastest growing companies in history. And for most of its history, the company wasn’t making any money.

For the first years, Facebook focused on viral growth – not earnings.

Mark Zuckerberg (along with Eduardo Saverin, Chris Hughes, and Dustin Moskovitz) founded Facebook in a Harvard dorm room in early 2004. By the end of that year, it had grown to almost one million users. However, even with all those subscribers, there was still no clear Facebook profit plan.

Over the years, the company took on new venture capitalists and other investors. They also expanded Facebook’s network to more schools. In the first six years, they reached over 500 million subscribers.

Then Facebook added advertisements.

Advertisements have created a revenue stream for Facebook like no other company has ever experienced. Facebook isn’t required to publish their daily revenue, but we can estimate it with some public figures. According to the tracking site Alexa.com, Facebook is the second most popular site in the world. With 550 million page views per day, a conservative ad revenue estimate is $1,650,000 per day. Per day! I don’t know about you, but that would be an awesome YEAR for me.

Isn’t it time that you put a little of that cash back in your pockets?

Facebook is leveraging you, so leverage back.

There are many ways to use your Facebook account to make yourself a little income. The simplest way I have found is to sign up as an affiliate with companies whose products and services my friends already want to purchase.

An awesome site that I found that makes being an online affiliate really easy is Entertisements.com. They let you use their free videos to put money into your pockets. Do yourself a favor and find out how to make Facebook revenue for yourself.
