Facebook has one billion active monthly users, CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed this morning.To add some context around that number, Zuckerberg points out in a Q&A with Ashlee Vance at Bloomberg BusinessWeek, that only other companies in the world with one billion customers are probably Coca-Cola and McDonald’s.
He also says Facebook employees counted down to hitting the milestone, then went back to work.
Here’s a note from Mark Zuckerberg this morning:
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 honour 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.
