Facebook now has 2 Billion monthly users

"So this big question we have been asking is, 'So, if there 2 billion people on Facebook, why are there only (130 million) in meaningful communities?'" he said.

Chief among the challenges it faces, Facebook is under pressure - along with other social media giants - to tackle the proliferation of hate speech and extremist content, trolls and misinformation, while safeguarding freedom of speech.

Facebook (FB) now has more users than the population of the U.S., China and Brazil - combined.

As of this morning, the Facebook community is now officially 2 billion people!

Zuckerberg, who said "it's an honour to be on this journey with you", is now worth some $65bn (£51bn). Facebook's plan to connect people with like-minded fellows sounds like "a fine idea", she said.

He told USA Today the firm had not made "much fanfare" about hitting the two billion figure because "we still haven't connected everyone".

Facebook is no longer just about "connecting the world".

Behind Facebook, YouTube is best positioned to surpass the two billion benchmark as they have 1.5 billion users.

"The first billion is easy".

Eight of 10 people don't like that they're being tracked by third parties, according to research from Envista Forensics, while 71 percent of people are more concerned about online privacy then they were a decade ago. About 15% of people live in remote regions that have no access. Instagram might soon join that club as it recently rocketed past 700 million. Facebook also has streaming deals with Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer.

The social network's user base dwarfs that of similar companies.

Zuckerberg unveiled Facebook's updated goal on Thursday at the social network's first Community Summit, a gathering in Chicago of leaders from 120 different Facebook Groups, Forbes.com reported.

'It's so important that we're changing Facebook's whole mission to take this on'. "That's how we'll bring the world closer together".

To celebrate this milestone, Facebook has launched a new personalized video feature to "show appreciation"; these videos also reflect the company's newly updated mission statement, which is to "Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together".
