How Many Photos Are Uploaded To Facebook Every Day?

If you were ever curious to how many photos get uploaded to Facebook everyday or how many likes happen across the entire social network or the sheer size of data booking the face is responsible for, look no further. Facebook gave a state of the union (of sorts) that detailed just how big Facebook data is.

Here’s the enormous breakdown that’s so big my head doesn’t understand the sheer size:

  • 2.5 billion content items shared
  • 2.7 billion Likes
  • 300 million photos uploaded
  • 500+ terabyte data ingested

  • Roughly broken down into Facebook users that’s a little under 3 Facebook likes a day and a picture uploaded every 3 days per Facebooker. But how come Facebook didn’t let us know how many time people get poked! Or how many pictures get pulled because of complaints? What about people tagged in photos? I want to know more. I want to know everything! [CNET]
