Just when you thought you had seen enough of Facebook, there always just little bit more to Like. Earlier in September, the social media network juggernaut had a reached a new plateau with over one billion active users.
“Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life,” Zuckerberg said in a blog post on Facebook.
To supplement the announcement, Facebook had released a fact sheet with some interesting facts:
Fox Business News reported earlier, that the announcement also coincided with an appearance by CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg on NBC’s “Today Show,” which helped boost Facebook’s languishing share price about 2%. Facebook's shares have been in a decline since going public in May, with a record-shattering initial public offering, crumbling to as low as $17.55 -- nearly half its $38 IPO price. Shares were up to 1.56% to $22.14 in recent trading Thursday morning.
Facebook actually had hit the one billion user milestone back on September 14th, just over 2 years since Facebook reached 500 million users.
“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,” Zuckerberg said.
