Facebook Reaches 1 Billion Users in a Day

28th August 2015

Facebook has become the most popular social network to date, with over 1.5 billion logging onto the site each month. The platform is used to share photos, post updates and stay connected with family and friends.

For the first time ever, Facebook has managed to get 1 billion people using the site on the same day. This is a huge achievement for the company as most social media networks, like Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest don’t manage to get this amount of users in a month.

Mark Zuckerberg, who founded the company in 2004, said that; “On Monday, 1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family. 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.”

“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.”

So far, the company has not explained what caused the significant increase but have said that the platform has been steadily gaining users over the past few years. In the second quarter of 2015, the site had an average of 968 million active users a day and 1.49 billion users accessing the social network each month.

The company has recently been investing time and money into improving its service. The company plans to release a personal assistant feature on Messenger, as well as incorporating news stories into user’s newsfeeds. If Facebook continues to improve its service and make exciting new plans for its service, the site will undoubtedly pull in more than 1 billion users in the future.
