Facebook is no doubt, the social media giant as loads and loads of people keep tripping into the social network every single day.
Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, Announced yesterday via his Facebook page, that on monday, the social network attained a new milestone of about 1 billion users in a day. He also added that this is the first time it is happening and thanks everyone for being part of the community.
His status reads thus:
We just passed an important milestone. For the first time ever, one billion people used Facebook in a single day.
On Monday, 1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family.
When we talk about our financials, we use average numbers, but this is different. This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it’s just the beginning of connecting the whole world.
I’m so proud of our community for the progress we’ve made. Our community stands for giving every person a voice, for promoting understanding and for including everyone in the opportunities of our modern world.
A more open and connected world is a better world. It brings stronger relationships with those you love, a stronger economy with more opportunities, and a stronger society that reflects all of our values.
Thank you for being part of our community and for everything you’ve done to help us reach this milestone. I’m looking forward to seeing what we accomplish together.
Facebook is no doubt helping people connect with others all over the world. Following Mark’s update, loads of people have shared how the social network has helped them in all areas of life. It’s really an awesome milestone. One billion users in just one day is really a big deal.
