The science fiction reality
Facebook celebrates one billion users
The world's biggest social network has made the billion.
In a Facebook blog post Mark Zuckerberg has announced that there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month.
To mark this landmark, the Facebook CEO went on to say:
"If you're reading this: thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you. Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life. I am committed to working every day to make Facebook better for you, and hopefully together one day we will be able to connect the rest of the world too."
One billion people is a momentous feat for a website that is still not even ten years old - but can you remember some of these other monumentous events in its short life?

A method to close a Facebook account does exist but it is a complicated and convoluted process with a significant number of members just giving up - which would appear to be the aim of Facebook.
So is the one billion members a true reflection of satisfied users? I doubt it.
What a joke! Facebook is inundated with thousands upon thousands of fake accounts, multiple accounts and worse of all lying, cheating Scammers mainly from West Africa. These accounts remain no matter how many times they have been reported. If Facebook were to remove all the defunct accounts, all the scammers and duplicate accounts the numbers would be considerably smaller than he is claiming.
The geeks bank balance is a lot bigger though with all the FACEBOOK share holders he ripped off with the crazy launch price and the fact he sold off millions of shares for cash leaving them high and dry
Hypocrite pretending hes doing it for FACEBOOK when like all Corp America its all about personal cash and self aggrandisement
Trust his bitch MSN to be pushing the myth
Never trust a yank claiming they are doing it for anyone but themselves
Frankly I'm shocked! I could have sworn there are more than 1 billion mugs in the world.
If I was mark suckburger ( or whatever his name is) I would laugh myself to sleep every night, just knowing that there are people in the world stupid enough to believe that facebook shares would increase in value. I think he deserves every penny of his wealth. Keep sucking up the BS dumbos ;)
