Facebook doubled its user base since 2012

Facebook doubled its user base since 2012

It is quite surprising when the Chief Executive of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg unveiled the number to his followers in a Facebook post. “It's an honor to be on this journey with you,” he wrote. 

Well, the number would spin your heads for a moment which is… 2 billion. Facebook said that they are its regular customers of this flagship service; the user base is bigger than the population of any single country, and of six of the seven continents. It represents more than a quarter of the world's 7.5 billion people. 

The number of users exceeds the population of any single country, and of six of the seven continents. Facebook construed that a monthly active user as a registered Facebook user who logged in and visited Facebook via its website or a mobile service, or used its messenger application for the past 30 days.

To increase penetration rates in developing nations, Facebook has rolled out pared-down versions of its apps that use less data, and it has been developing solar-powered drones to extend internet connectivity around the planet.
