Past Monday, Mark Zuckerberg felt proud of his social product Facebook when 1 billion users of Facebook used the service. Its a historical high for Facebook when so many users have used Facebook login in a single day. Facebook achieved the milestone of registering 1 billion users way back in 2012 and currently its around 1.3 billion.
Its a never stopping progress for Facebook as we have witnessed decline in growth of many similar social products in the past after sometime. However Facebook is enjoying their legendary social success at best.
Mark reached out to his followers on his Facebook page to announce this milestone. He wrote:
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.
Social statistics also suggests that possibly every 7th person on the planet logged into the social service that day. Yes definitely you all are part of this success as I am sure you must have helped Facebook with your Facebook login contribution in this mega achievement.
