Zuckerberg Wants Facebook to Have 5 Billion Users by 2030

Mark Zuckerberg is known for thinking on a large-scale, but his long-term plans for Facebook will definitely be challenging to achieve. Mark wants Facebook to have no less than 5 billion users by 2030, and while this goal is certainly achievable on paper, its real-world application is going to depend on numerous factors, including the overall number of internet users across the globe. Right now, “just” 3.2 billion people enjoy access to the internet, but as the world’s population is expected to soar to as much as 8 billion in the coming years, this figure is bound to expand quite a bit. Obviously, if Facebook wants to draw in more users in the next few decades, it will need to take on an active role in providing internet access to the world’s less developed nations.

Google is currently trying to do just that with its Project Loon and Skybender projects, and while Facebook is certainly trying to catch up with its own drone projects and initiatives such as Internet.org, progress has been a bit slow. Some of you might think that Facebook is likely to die out or be replaced with another service by 2030, and I’m definitely not going to argue with that. However, sources suggest that Zuckerberg has big plans for the social network in the coming years, which means that he has probably figured out exactly how to ensure its growth in popularity.
