Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg announced yesterday that earlier this week, Facebook has been accessed by 1 billion people in a single day.
On Monday August 24, 2015, one seventh of the world’s population used Facebook, which is a bit surprising when considering a large number of people (approximately a couple of billions) are still not connected to the world wide web.
Zuckerberg posted on Facebook yesterday that he is so proud of “his” community’s achievement. In our modern world Facebook has been promoting understanding and gave everyone a voice and countless other opportunities. The popular platform’s leader said that the more open and connected a world is, it is better.
Facebook now stands as the first great example of the type of instant communication medium that brings stronger relationships between individuals of the Global Village, and also as a symbol that reflects all of our downsides and values.
Zuckerberg thanks Facebook users for being part of the community and everything they’ve done to help his site reach this historic milestone and he is looking forward for what the future will reserve.
The achievement of the California-based website sent their stock up by 3-4% and now the company has a capital market of $253.2 billion.
The site is the second after Google to reach such a level of preeminence, but is the first of its nature that does so. Compared to its rivals, the empire-large social media connectivity of Facebook is unprecedented in the history of the Internet. In order to attest that we’ll add that no other site of its kind ever had more than 300 million people logged in at the same time.
Ever since Mark Zuckerberg has created Facebook in his college dorm room at Harvard back in 2004, the social media site has surpassed sites like YouTube and Baidu and become the most trafficked website in the world after Google.
