Facebook Hits 2 billion users; here’s what you need to know

“We’re getting to a size where it’s worth really taking a careful look at what are all the things that we can do to make social media the most positive force for good possible,” Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox told TechCrunch, regarding the company’s new and significant milestone.

Thirteen years subsequent to launching and under five years in the wake of hitting 1 billion, Facebook now has 2 billion month to month dynamic users.

Facebook asks people to celebrate with a customized “Good Adds Up” video they can make and share online here. In the interim, Mark Zuckerberg played it cool with this short declaration message.

Two billion makes the social networking site Facebook the biggest social application as far as signed in users are concerned. This is over YouTube’s 1.5 billion, WeChat’s 889 million, Twitter’s 328 million and Snapchat’s assessed 255 million (extrapolated from its December 2015 proportion when it had 110 million every day and 170 million month to month users). Past YouTube, just Facebook’s different applications have more than 1 billion, including WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, with 1.2 billion each. Instagram may soon join that club as it as of late flew by past 700 million.

The technology scene over the last half decade has powered Facebook’s development. The company has steadily enhanced its application for shoddy Android smartphones and low-bandwidth network connections. Facebook increased its reach to low-range smartphones by the Facebook Lite app, which requires less memory and bandwidth. It has connected 746 million users in Asia and the Rest of World region since hitting 1 billion users add up to. In the meantime, it just included 41 million in the U.S. and Canada.

Now, the major challenge for the social network giant would be to make sure the content shared on the safe is safe and doesn’t lead to aggression. Also, privacy is a concern which Facebook should steadily address.
