As if it wasn’t content with being the biggest social network platform in the world, Facebook has experienced a new impressive milestone. According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement, Facebook had achieved the feat of having one billion people logged in in the same day.
There’s no other social media network that can pride in having 1 in 7 people on Earth using their platform in the timeframe of a single day, but this is exactly what happened on Monday. Usually, the company estimates the traffic by average numbers, but this week witnessed the first step toward Facebook’s plan of connecting the whole world.
The special milestone was also commemorated through a celebratory video released by Facebook. In the same announcement post, Zuckerberg went to thank users for being a part of the community and for enabling the amazing progress the platform now enjoys.
“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.”
Even though no information was offered on the source of the new users, that comes on the second plan when there’s such a reason to celebrate. Not only the tech giant, but also the advertisers who have a share in its profit – but the young CEO didn’t mention anything about them.
An ever-expanding network, Facebook might soon right the saturation point, as some market analysts noticed a trend among younger users of turning to other “hip” platforms, such as Instagram and Snapchat. But it will be a while longer until any of these can pride themselves with the feat Facebook has just achieved.
Young Mark Zuckerberg is rather successful on a professional level, holding the tile of “wealthiest individual under the age of 35.” His personal fortune has been evaluated at $41.6 billion, and it’s about to raise even more after the project of Internet.org will be launched.
Think Facebook’s plans sound more and more like it wants to conquer the online? With the 4.5 billion users that it intends to connect with Internet.org, the company might not be that far from it. The project is still in the phase of finding operators to launch the service in different countries.
