From the Paper:

"Facebook is a social networking site that was once primarily targeted at the college and university student. For the past year the company has broadened its target market profile and become increasingly popular with professionals and businesses as well. Facebook earned revenues of between $100m to $150m during 2006 and the first part of 2007 primarily through an advertising partnership with Microsoft Corporation (Adegoke, 2007). Currently, Facebook is privately held and hence the difficulty in determining exact revenues. However, the company maintains in excess of 40m active account holders and receives in excess of 200k registration requests daily after just 3 years of existence (Adegoke, 2007). Facebook is highly successful and determined to continue to leverage its growing membership base and regular visitors in order to monetize its services."
