Facebook Hits 2B Monthly Active Users

Facebook is still the most-used social network on earth — and the social networking firm has solidified that title with its recent announcement: it officially has two billion monthly active users.

“This wouldn’t have happened without the millions of smaller communities and individuals who are sharing and making meaningful contributions every day. Each day, more than 175 million people share a Love reaction, and on average, over 800 million people like something on Facebook. More than 1 billion people use Groups every month,” Facebook said in a statement.

“To show our appreciation for the many ways people support one another on Facebook, we will share several personalized experiences over the coming days.”

The social network is also celebrating in other warm and fuzzy ways such as “celebrating the good people do” by sending thank you messages to the news feeds of people who “react to a friend’s post with Love, wishes someone happy birthday or creates a group.”

Facebook announced back in the fall of 2012 it had reached the one billion user mark, meaning it has taken the social networking firm just shy of five years to add its next billion users to the fold.
