Interesting to see Facebook (FB) announce reaching 1B active users today and releasing this ad. If the company got to that many users without major ad spending, why start now? Is this a sign that Facebook is starting to lose users regardless of the announcement today?
Its not like I need to be reminded to use a chair. If I want to connect with somebody, I'll use Facebook or maybe just pick up my smartphone. Either way, just doesn't seem like Facebook will be the lasting service for connecting with people.
Just as AOL (AOL) and MySpace were in the past, Facebook is in the process of succumbing to more interesting methods. For now, it has some possibility of keeping users via its Instagram service. Either way, should the company be worth $47B?
Let me know what you think of the commercial.
