If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you used Facebook on Monday. In fact, one out of every 7 people on the planet used the social network on August, 24, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said recently. That’s incredible, and it shows just how far the reaches of Facebook — once limited to a single college campus — now expand.
“When we talk about our financials, we use average numbers, but this is different,” Zuckerberg said. “This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it’s just the beginning of connecting the whole 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.”
Facebook will continue to try to connect the rest of the world through various initiatives. It has boosted its mobile applications to work on lower-powered phones with products such as “Facebook Lite,” and is also working on other projects such as high-flying drones that will provide users below with strong enough connections to access its network.
How long until Facebook has 2 billion people in a single day?
