Facebook Reaches Over a Billion Users in One Day
John Williamson / 5 years ago
Facebook has reached another unbelievable milestone and recorded over one billion users within a single day. The announcement was made via Mark Zuckerbeg’s official Facebook account and the data indicates 1 in 7 people throughout the world used Facebook on Monday. It’s impossible to quantify how momentous this achievement is and it’s clear that social media has become an integral part of daily life.
We just passed an important milestone. For the first time ever, one billion people used Facebook in a single day.On…
In theory, the statistics could be incorrect as it’s possible for individuals to access multiple accounts. Therefore, did 1 in 7 real people actually use Facebook in one day? Honestly, I can believe it and know of many people who are addicted to Facebook. Instead of waking up in the morning and cleaning their teeth, they check Facebook and reply to any notifications.
To celebrate this event, many advocates of Facebook have been sharing inspirational stories about meeting long-lost relatives, and how Facebook changed their lives. Over the years, some critics expected Facebook’s popularity to curtail as people became disinterested with the monotony of posting life-events online. However, the opposite has occurred, and many social media services including Facebook and Twitter are as influential as ever. In the future, it’s perfectly feasible for Facebook to reach 10 billion people accessing the site in a day as the current numbers could be greatly reduced by the older generation not using computers.
