Mark Zuckerberg made a few digs at Google during his Facebook announcement and was sure to let people know that he was confident. Zuckerberg also told everyone that Facebook now has 750 million users. That is huge and the number is only growing day by day as more people log on to the service and create accounts.

Mark Zuckerberg was asked what he thought about Google + which he replied calmly

“As far as the Google stuff goes, I’m not going to say a lot. The next 5 years are about building apps. A lot of companies that haven’t been social in the past, not just Google, will be building social apps. In some cases they’ll build on existing infrastructure, in some they’ll build their own. Facebook’s job is to stay focused.”

Will you be going outside of facebook or staying on the largest social network?
