Facebook recently announced it had smashed through the 1 billion users barrier. That’s 1 billion people around the world who are actively using Facebook each month. Of course it would be foolish to believe every single one of those users was an individual, legitimate, and human….but it’s an impressive achievement nonetheless.

Thankfully we here at MakeUseOf have the power to find out the answer to that question, by asking our intelligent and loyal readership to answer it as eloquently as possible.

Beyond that feel free to tell us about your personal experiences with Facebook. Do you consider it a joy to use or is it purely the best option available? Do you feel the Facebook experience has improved or worsened over the last few years? And why do you feel that way? What could Facebook do to improve its service, if anything? How do you see the future of Facebook panning out?
