Of all the social media statistics, this one is most loved. If Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest country in the world. With 500 million members, only China and India are bigger. But what kind of a country would it be?
A country governed by a small unelected elite.
A country which conducts routine intelligence on its populace.
A country without effective separation of powers.
A country which makes it hard to leave.
A country where the median age is 26.
So, if Facebook were a country... it would be Burma.
