On Monday August 24, 1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook. This is pretty wild to think about it especially considering the digital divide in the world. Billions of people are not connected.
Zuckerberg said: "I'm so proud of our community for the progress we've made. Our community stands for giving every person a voice, for promoting understanding and for including everyone in the opportunities of our modern world. A more open and connected world is a better world. It brings stronger relationships with those you love, a stronger economy with more opportunities, and a stronger society that reflects all of our values."
He continues to thank all Facebook users: "Thank you for being part of our community and for everything you've done to help us reach this milestone. I’m looking forward to seeing what we accomplish together."
The news of the historic Facebook milestone sent the FB stock up almost 3%. It closed after hours at $90.10. Facebook has now a market capitalization of $253 billion.
