Facebook is celebrating its 6th birthday in style, with yet another traffic milestone: 400 million users served. It is now by far the largest social media and social networking site in the world.
Two months ago the social network hit 350 million, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg reminds us that number was less than half of today’s 400 million mark a year ago. It took the site about three months to climb from 300 to 350 million users and only about two months to gain another 50 million, indicating Facebook (Facebook)’s explosive growth is actually still accelerating.
Zuckerberg also mentions some upcoming announcements followed by an all-night Hackathon coding session. We’ll be on the ground at Facebook HQ to cover the upcoming new features, so sit tight for more birthday news on the way.
