Facebook hits billion users in a day
For the first time over a billion people used Facebook on a single day, according to company founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The “milestone” was reached on Monday, when “1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family”, he said in a post.
Facebook has nearly 1.5 billion users who log in at least once a month, but this was the most in a single day.
In his post on Thursday, he predicted that Facebook’s reach would continue to grow.
“This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it’s just the beginning of connecting the whole world,” Mr Zuckerberg wrote.
