Today, one year after the extension’s opened for business, it already has 60,000,000 users. More than 80,000 web sites have integrated to this service, and that does not include more number that use apps. Many web agency use this Facebook Connect in their web development because it’s far more practical for both developer and user than using own membership system.

Facebook Connect is now still growing with approximately 160,000 new user every day.
