On October 7, 2012, social media agency fishbat, Inc. comments on the announcement made on Mashable that Facebook has attained one billion active users.
According to Mashable, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in a blog post that Facebook had finally attained the billion user milestone. The article reports that Facebook had accrued over 955 million active users as of July 2012, marking a 45 million user increase since that time. The official date of the milestone was September 14, 2012, according to a release of statistics made by Facebook to coincide with the announcement. Other statistics in the fact sheet include likes, shares, tagged posts, uploaded pictures etc. since Facebook’s release.
Sida Li, VP of Client Operations at fishbat, comments on this milestone for Facebook, saying, “This is an achievement that Facebook was bound to achieve eventually. Facebook’s ability to grow suddenly from 955 million users to a billion in only two months shows how widespread Facebook has become. As Zuckerberg himself stated in the announcement, the prime goal of Facebook is to eventually connect the entire world. This is certainly a stepping stone that may one day lead to that grand ambition,” Li says.
For fishbat and many other social media agencies, Facebook is one of the largest facets for online marketing which businesses and people can network. “It’s staggering to think of the potential that could come from millions of new active users adding onto the billion that are already part of the social network. Facebook’s goal has always been to connect people from all over the world. Now, with the billion mark having been struck, it now seems possible that the entire world can literally become connected in only a matter of years,” says Sida Li. “The online marketing and business world will continue to thrive in years to come, thanks entirely to social media giants such as Facebook.”
