Facebook Has Almost 18 Million Business Pages, Adding 1M Per Month

facebook-pages-iconThere are now nearly 18 million business pages on Facebook — a stat shared during today’s earnings call by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.

The 18 million figure counts as of the end of Q2 — June 30th. It represents a growth rate of about a million new pages each month over the past three month. Let’s turn back the clock a bit:

In other words, over the past year, Facebook has added about 7 million Pages. But about three million of those have been added just in the past three months.

Calling them “business” Pages is actually a slight misnomer because Facebook’s count includes all Page categories. Most of the six main categories are business-oriented, but one — Cause/Community Pages — is also counted in that total.
