Facebook’s 800 mln users seemed to support the online platform;s growth in revenue terms even as it is on the verge of missing its ambitious $4 bln target by December 2011.

However, Facebook  has already achieved revenues of $2.5bln till September and with $3.8 bln considered achievable, most Facebook followers including its employees and investors on SecondMarket / Sharespost and its ibnvestors that purchased the book from Goldman Sachs for a $50 bln valuation would be following its revenues till New Year’s eve as it has already doubled its 2010 revenues of $1.86 bln

Payment platform referrals pay up to 30% and even steeper likely, making its share higher than 14%  of the firm’s $2.5 bln revenues this year.
