FACEBOOK’S BILLIONTH user will be a female from Asia, aged between 18 and 24, according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies are now taking bets on all aspects of the billionth user (upon official confirmation by Facebook) and make them a 16/1 shot to be a UK resident. It’s 8/11 that the landmark member is a female (evens male) and 12/1 to be a silver surfer over the age of 65.
Despite pledging never to charge for their services, it’s 33/1 they perform a U-turn this year with bigger odds of 50/1 applying should their servers crash for 30 continuous days or more.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “In terms of the user count reaching a billion all bets are off. It’s simply a question of who and where with the odds pointing us in the direction of the East.”
