When I was at the Facebook Studio Live Hack the other day ‘Boz’ almost made fun of the Photo product from Facebook in that it was clunky, had limits on number of photos you could upload to each album and that the photos didn’t display well. But what he did say bested all this was scale.
Facebook currently hosts 140 billion photos and are on course to add another 70 billion this year. Crazy numbers.
It is estimated that 3.5 trillion photos have been taken throughout history so Facebook is hosting 4% of photographic history. Truly incredible.
