By way of his status update, Mark Zuckerberg has announced that Facebook now has over 1 billion active monthly users. At the same time, the social network has released their first ad, one that aligns Facebook with other things that people use to get together and connect. Here’s what Mark said on his status:
This morning, there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month.
If you’re reading this: thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you.
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.
