With more than 700 million people using Facebook worldwide, the number is likely to reach one billion by 2012. But who were the first Facebook users?

According to Business Insider, Facebook profile's URL includes a string of numbers (www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=5500957) that will tell you where you fall in the grand order of everyone who signed up for Facebook, reports Newser.

Now, whoever has seen the Academy Award winner, The Social Network, would know that the first few users would be Zuckerberg's friends and Harvard students. Here's a list of first 10 Facebookers:-

   1. Empty
   2. Empty
   3. Empty
   4. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder, CEO
   5. Chris Hughes, Zuckerberg's roommate, Facebook co-founder
   6. Dustin Moskovitz, Zuckerberg's roommate, Facebook co-founder
   7. Arie Hasit, friend of Hughes
   8. Empty
   9. Empty
  10. Marcel Georges Laverdet, an early engineer at Facebook, he snagged an early profile ID

While the founder Zuckerberg is on number 4, the first 3 profiles are empty - might have been made for testing purposes.

You might be the most loyal Facebook user and may have shown the social networking path to many of your friends, but in the Facebook lineup, where do you stand? To find out you just have to see a profile id no.
