You know what's cooler than a million users? A billion users. And now Facebook has just that.
Yep, the social network birthed in a Harvard dorm grew in eight short years to a membership that it says accounts for nearly one-seventh of the world’s population. Not fake users or bots — which Facebook tracks closely — but real humans who actively engage on the social network, a company spokesperson told TODAY.
Just so we’re clear: As of Sept. 14, one in seven people on this planet has been classified by the company as an active Facebook user.
