Facebook is 1,000,000,000 Strong!

1,000,000,000 Strong!

Facebook crossed over a milestone that no other platform in the 1990’s, 2000’s or this decade has seen.  1 Billion people are using Facebook Messenger.  Hear that AOL chat rooms?  OK, that was so 1990, but at its peak, chat rooms in Yahoo and AOL combined only saw 450 million users.

Consider the connections. Money exchange, wedding plans, businesses created all through the billions of messages sent on a monthly basis.  Messenger, found itself as an afterthought on the creative room floor, is now a platform for globally business and friends to share.

1,000,000,000 strong and counting http://newsroom.fb.com/news/2016/07/thank-you-messenger/
