If Facebook were a country, it would be the eighth most populated in the world, just ahead of Japan, Russia and Nigeria.

Right, except its demographics would be a bit skewed.
There would be no children and no elderly.
Half of the population would be dead, flopped over in their houses, with nobody noticing or caring. But they’re still counted in the census!
A quarter of the population would be marketing consultants yelling advertisements at everyone. They’re counted, too.
And nobody, including the government, would be making any money or producing much of lasting value.
