US Facebook Users Consume 53 billion minutes per Month

Building a chart based on previous user number announcements, iCrossings says Facebook will probably reach 1 billion users sometime in August 2012.
In the past, "active" has meant that these people log in once a month. What is worthy of a mention  is the sheer consistency of users on Facebook .According to Facebook's internal data , more than 50% of its users log in on a daily basis.

A new report on social media from Nielsen shows U.S. users spent 53.5 billion minutes on Facebook in May, which is more time than was spent on the next four biggest sites.

TicketMaster Launches Facebook-integrated Social Seating

Hoping to make the process of buying tickets to concerts as social as attending them, Ticketmaster launched the new Facebook-enhanced seating charts recently, giving fans the option of buying seats near their friends. Ticketmaster has just announced that it’s integrating Facebook into its interactive seat maps. You will be able to share event plans with your friends by tagging yourself in seats, allow your friends to see where you will be sitting at an event and find out which seats are available for purchase.

After clicking the "find tickets" link for an event, users are given the option to log into their Facebook account. Any friends of theirs who have purchased a ticket and tagged themselves in the seating chart will show up accordingly on the venue's floor layout.
Once tickets are purchased, a status update is sent to Facebook for all to see. If they're interested in attending, they can click the "Buy Tickets" link that accompanies the update.

The feature is part of the ticket-selling giant's renewed effort to remake itself as a more consumer-friendly and innovative company, according to an Fast Company story. Whenever fans posted on Facebook about concerts they'd just bought, the company would see an average $5.30 more in ticket revenue, CEO Nathan Hubbard said. It was those results that demonstrated to executives the power of social media when it comes to commerce. It's fan-friendly and socially-driven inititatives like this that executives hope will help revitalize the slumping concert industry, which saw a 12% drop in sales from 2009 to 2010. The feature is currently available for 300 venues on the site.
