Fortune revealed today that Facebook made the Fortune 500 earlier in its life than any other company.

From the report:

Given the company’s 2011¬†earnings¬†reported in its S-1, the tech giant is still expected to land safely in the 400 to 415 range ranking among Fortune 500 companies. If that happens, Facebook will be the first new company to join the Fortune 500 less than a year after going public.

The previous record was held by Google, who made it on to the list 16 months after going public. Next fastest was Dell, in just over three years.
