I, of course, found it quite interesting that Facebook is running PHP.

You might have noticed that the user-facing portion of Facebook is written in PHP, and we're fortunate enough to be able to make contributions back to some PHP related projects.

I always have to smile when I see a large site running PHP. :) It seems to be working really well for them.

They even allow php developers (mostly college students from what I've seen) create custom applications [developers.facebook.com], something that seems to be very popular among facebook's users.

Overall their contributions to the php community are nice additions.

funny how you hear so many people saying php is slow or not scaleable

seems to work for Facebook and Yahoo (just to name 2), I guess the naysayers sites must have more traffic than Y and FB, hehe

geez eelix, I guess we should be building facebook apps ;)

I was in a chat room where we were discussing what sites use PHP and we had a huge list. I should have saved it.
Or maybe we should start a thread here?

I think if a thread was started that listed major sites that use php, it would quickly overwhelm the reader... maybe it would be better to type a list of sites that are switching from PHP to asp, or microsh** or whatever...

I'm just saying!
