“Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday. “As of this morning, the Facebook community is now officially 2 billion people! We’re making progress connecting the world, and now let’s bring the world closer together says the elated CEO.
It took the social network less than five years to go from 1 billion monthly users to 2 billion. A population equivalent to roughly 51 times that of California.
