Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, announced this achievement yesterday morning in a status update message posted on Facebook. This moment does not come as a total surprise as Facebook already had 955 million users in the end of month June this year.
Mark Zuckerberg added: “Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life.
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.”
Facebook’s long sought 10-digit member mark could mean a lot for the company. This update will most likely have a huge impact on Facebook’s stock price.
