Facebook has hit a massive milestone. According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the social network now has more than two billion users clicking, liking and sharing every second of every day.
The site is by far and away the largest social network in the world, with WhatsApp – its closest competitor – trailing behind by several hundred million users.
Zuckerberg’s company was also the first to pass one billion users back in 2012. Today, there are more than a billion mobile users alone.
“Each day, more than 175 million people share a Love reaction, and on average, over 800 million people like something on Facebook,” says Mike Nowak, Product Director. “To show our appreciation for the many ways people support one another on Facebook, we will share several personalized experiences over the coming days.”
In case you were wondering, the earth’s current population stands at more than 7,5-billion people. Tha means that 27% of the entire world is on Facebook. If that’s not remarkable, what is?
“We're making progress connecting the world, and now let's bring the world closer together,” says Zuckerberg in a Facebook post. “It's an honor to be on this journey with you.”
