Facebook reaches a billion on same day

Facebook's Zuckerberg - Wikimedia CommonsMark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of social networking site Facebook, said that last Monday a billion people used the software.

That’s one in seven people on the planet.

In a comment he made on his own Facebook page late yesterday, Zuckerberg thinks that its reach worldwide will continue to grow.

Zuckerberg started Facebook as a way of contacting other people when he was a student at Harvard University.

Stats show that Facebook has nearly one and a half billion people worldwide, who use it to irritate their friends, show what they’ve eaten for supper, and point to other news sources on the world wide web.

Zuckerberg is now a very rich man.
