According to a study by iCrossing – Digital Marketing Agency in the UK, they have estimated the continued growth of Facebook user numbers.

According to their study and the continued linear growth of Facebook users – it is expected Facebook will reach 1 Billion users/members by August 2012.

Here is the chart they have put together showing the growth:

This will obviously be an enormous milestone for Facebook. Many western countries eg USA, UK, Australia and so on have about half their population already on Facebook (46% of the total Australian population is on Facebook) – meaning the new growth will now more than likely come from developing countries.
