The Largest Online Rally in History

The kick-ass folks over at Facebook Causes have really pulled off something special this last week.  In  just under 5 days, 1,745,754 people sent out 4,919,071 status messages on Facebook.  What does this mean you ask?

It means that on the social network Facebook people have the option to set their statuses. It could be anything from a link to your newest blog post, to what you’re doing on Twitter to where you are. And instead of the normal status messages last week, people set it to do something special. They used to remind people to vote.  Basically the Causes folks created the largest online rally in History. Amazing stuff. Check out the stats below:
