Answer by Thejo Kote:

May not be comparable to Facebook, but Skype and hi5.com use Postgres.

Stats from Skype deployment (http://www.slideshare.net/adorepump/small-overview-of-skype-database-tools):

  • Over 100 database servers and 200 databases
  • Largest table has several billions of records.
  • Over 10000 transactions per second.
  • Databases are used mainly for web store, billing and other centrally provided services.
  • All accessed through stored procedures.
