Facebook celebrates one billion users online in a single day

Facebook logoThe aim of Mark Zuckerberg, through Facebook, has been to connect the world. On Monday this week, the social network saw one billion people logging on to send messages, post photos, write status updates, and generally be social. One billion people in a single day.

Or to put it another way -- as Zuckerberg does -- "1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family". There aren’t many companies or services that can claim to have such a wide reach, so the palpable pride is entirely understandable.

Over the years, Facebook has developed and broadened its reach and appeal. It is now far more than just a site for sharing pictures of your breakfast, or letting the world know what you love and hate -- it has become a platform for raising money, raising awareness of issues, streaming videos of events, connecting with companies and celebrities, and most recently the company unveiled M, its digital assistant.

Facebook celebrates one billion users online in a single day

In a post on his own social network, Mark Zuckerberg says:

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.
