How many people using facebook in San Francisco at 2:30pm on a Friday?

About 60 percent of adults (18+) Americans have a Facebook account. But we're talking San Francisco here--the Valhalla of Nerdery and all things internet--so lets bump that up to 80 percent (this 30 percent increase is justified by the fact that SF is 30 percent geekier than anywhere else...). For purposes of the question, let's limit this explicitly to the city of San Francisco--not the entire Bay Area. At night, SF is about 800,000 people strong. Let's assume a little over 20 percent of that population is either too old or young to use Facebook (it would be higher if mothers hadn't taken off FB...). Let's say that leaves 600,000 people (note: working with round numbers is better for these sorts of things). But then we have to take into account the fact people commute to and from SF! Nerds pour out into the South Bay, suits (e.g., bankers) come in from the East. I suspect the city population swells by 50 percent. If we toss in tourists and conference goers and everything else, 1 million people are in San Francisco at 2:30pm on a Friday. Eighty percent of those people use Facebook, so we have 800,000 possible Facebook users at that time. The final step is to figure out what percent of the 800,000 are using Facebook at 2:30pm. It's later in the day so I suspect it will be higher than at 11:00am. But I don't really have a good baseline to judge. When I walk around my office, roughly 10 to 20 percent of screens I see as around the office are on some non-work related thing at any time. Let's call that 15 percent and assume that all non-work related surfing by FB users includes some sort of use of FB. That means 120,000 people are using FB at 2:30pm on Friday in San Francisco. Less

All of them. Facebook's corporate HQ is in Menlo Park, a suburb of San Francisco. So, anyone using Facebook is using "Facebook in San Francisco". Less

What would you do if minutes before your shift your computer wouldn't turn on?

I haven't had it yet but once I do I will update you with the answer soon after. :) Less

They asked me STAR questions, that I wasn't prepared for. I studied Q&amp;A on this entire site and he didn't ask me not one of those questions. I was shocked, thrown off and didn't get the offer. I'll be better prepared next time, with recorder on and everything, lol Less

I didn't get any of the questions that people got either. The types of questions I got are in the above paragraph. Strengths, weaknesses, traits that o could bring to the company and behavior that I would bring to the position I'm applying for. I'm sorry you didn't get the offer. I was a nervous wreck throughout the entire ordeal thinking I didn't get it. Try again for regular at home. I saw some postings online dated for Jan 10 for Apple care . Best of luck to you. Less

"Where did you grow up?"

Unfortunate that I'm unable to find an option to edit my previous post. My career spans over 20 years in the financial arena in administrative and designing marketing collateral for global institutional asset management firms. It a sad situation where individuals such as this "marketing manager" are in positions of power to decide who moves to the next level in the interview process. It's an unfortunate truth that indeed "mediocrity rises". Less

Can you elaborate on the excel test you took?

Just read this comment with interest I’m a professional HR Executive and I think you’re very unprofessional making comments about a company you haven’t even been to - your naivety is quite clear that you don’t know the commercial business world and how companies operate and make decisions - I don’t know the company you’re referring to but I think they’ve done themselves a favour not employing you - get a grip girl and welcome to the real commercial world Less

Dissing a company publicly online over a pathetic conversation which is obviously biased shows very immature behaviour from yourself - businesses have more important decisions to worry about rather than worrying about comments from little girls (assuming you’re a girl) who are offended by not being pampered by a business who clearly were interested in offering you a position - at least they’ve escaped employing you - try and be more professional instead of slagging businesses off who are trying to keep their heads above water with day to day challenges Less
