Facebook, the social network (of course) reached one billion users just over three hours ago. That’s right, folks – that’s almost an eight of the world’s population. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted this:
“This morning, there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month.
If you’re reading this: thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you.
Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life.
I am committed to working every day to make Facebook better for you, and hopefully together one day we will be able to connect the rest of the world too.”
Facebook also released this simple yet effective video titled “The things that connect us” to celebrate this massive day.
