Mark Zuckerberg, the iconic founder of the massive social network, announced in a status update Thursday that 1 billion people used Facebook on Monday. Here’s a crazy statistic for you: For the first time in history, one billion people used Facebook in a single day this past Monday. All told, Facebook actually has 1.49 billion monthly users , which is, as we’ve noted before, more people than live in China .
- While Facebook first reached more than 1 billion active users back in 2012 , those were month averages that could include infrequent users on the site only once every couple of weeks.
- Putting it another way, one person used Facebook for every four dollars the company made last quarter .
- It’s Facebook’s world, we’re just living in it.
