Facebook is everywhere these days. People have to log into it for pretty much every purpose. Restaurant menus, new movies, oh, and also to keep up with friends, share pictures, chat, and all that other good stuff. Facebook is not just popular in the United States however; Facebook is a worldwide phenomenon and that global reach is what really has made a difference in the social network battle of the early 00s. Facebook passed one billion concurrent users at once on Monday, a huge milestone for the company.
“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,” said Mark Zuckerberg in, what else, a Facebook post. “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 don’t have a Facebook account anymore, having deleted mine a long time ago. Amazingly, this still causes problems for me when it comes to attending events, tracking food trucks, and even getting invited to things by my friends. When everyone but you uses Facebook, it’s pretty easy to be left out of the loop.Technorati Tags: 1 billion concurrent users, facebook, facebook milestones, facebook passes 1 billion users, mark zuckerberg, one billion users on facebook at one time
