With every passing day Facebook is strengthening its presence and impact on Internet users across the globe. Facebook, recently valued worth $81 billion, has improved its user base count further by securing 80 million new registrations in first quarter of 2011.

Available in 213 countries, Facebook has performed exponentially in first quarter of 2011. Company has grown from 585 million users in December 2010 to 665 million by March 2011. That means around 14% jump in just 3 months of the year. Interestingly, If Facebook can manage to improve the growth ratio marginally; it will be celebrating charismatic 1 billion user base with year-end bash.

In the recent growth teenagers have contributed significantly. Nearly 30% of the new account registrations have been made by users in the age group of 18-24 years of age. Holding 210 million users, this age group constantly remains the burliest one on Facebook.

Not surprisingly, the third biggest gain of Facebook users in the first quarter of 2011 has been in the age group of 35-44 years of age, almost 11 million new registrations and 90 million Facebook accounts in total.

More than 72 % of all Facebook users belong to one of the three above mentioned categories which means more than 475 million users are in the age between 18 and 44 years of age.

United Stats, Indonesia, United Kingdom, Turkey and India are the top countries which have significant contribution in overall growth of Facebook. However, Brazil and Japan got the major role to play in Facebook’s 1 billion mark as they are adding more number of users with highest growth rate.

At this point, next two quarters are going to become crucial for Facebook as it will clear the cloud whether 1 Billion user-base party bash will thrown in 2011 or get shifted for next year.
