Online Marketing Team Examines Facebook's New Milestone.
Our online marketing team are today celebrating a social media milestone – social networking giant Facebook now boasts a whopping one billion active users! Mark Zuckerberg himself made the announcement this afternoon, updating his Facebook profile with a humbling and quite inspiring wall post: “This morning, there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month. If you're reading this: thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you,” he wrote. “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.” After quashing the perception that the Facebook machine could not be stopped in May with a scary stock plummet following a less than encouraging public offering, Facebook made it’s way back to the top by rolling out a series of new features to improve numerous areas of the website, including, to the relief of our online marketing team, more targeted Facebook advertising. But Zuckerberg has instead chosen a more unconventional way to celebrate reaching this impressive achievement; putting website improvements to one side and introducing Facebook’s first ever brand video! “For the first time in our history, we've made a brand video to express what our place is on this earth,” he told his Facebook followers. “We belong to a rich tradition of people making things that bring us together and today we honour this tradition. We honour the humanity of the people we serve; we honour the everyday things people have always made to bring us together: chairs, doorbells, airplanes, bridges, games. These are all things that connect us. I hope you enjoy this video as much as we do.” This newest Facebook achievement also marks an encouraging day for the world of online marketing, indicating just how many potential customers there are out there, and who could be nurtured using the power of Facebook marketing.
