The last thing in the world I need is better facebook integration.  What happens when Facebook falls of the Earth??  You have all this bloated crap in your OS.

If Facebook falls off the Earth.... the OS will be updated... and the bloat will be removed.

It's probably 30 lines of code out of millions. Nothing to lose sleep over anyway.

So far Mountain Lion feels more stable and quicker than Lion.  I'm having fewer issues and am seeing faster internet performance and a faster interface.  Power management seems about the same.  The only issue I had was on the initial install.  After a few minutes, I got a warning screen telling me my HDD was damaged and could not be repaired, so ML could not be installed.  I ran a permissions repair and disk verify, which came up OK.  It then installed in about 30-45 minutes.   So far, so good.  

I can only please one person per day.  Today is not your day.  Tomorrow doesn't look good either.

So that only leaves 872 million accounts.
And I reckon that translates to a lot of users too.
It's still the largest online community... any way you slice it.

I guesstimate at least 100 million accounts are duplicate, triplicate, ones. Accounts that are abandoned from games people are barred and banned from. Lots of fake accounts as well. I just get annoyed when every equates an account for a unique, individual, separate user. Not even close....

That's precisely the quote I just showed you. Facebook already factored in all the fake accounts and whatnot.

So what's the real number of users then? 800 million? 700 million? Who knows. But Facebook is still the most popular social network on the internet. People ARE using it... more than any other membership site.

There are about 2 billion people on the Internet... so it's not hard to believe that 800 million people are on Facebook.
