Facebook: Two Billion Monthly Users Doesn’t Satisfy Mark Zuckerberg, ‘We Still Haven’t Connected Everyone’

Facebook is, without a doubt, one of the largest websites and it’s the biggest social media network currently. Despite its massive following and number of users, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg still isn’t satisfied with the performance of the social media giant.

Mark Zuckerberg announced at his official Facebook page that the website has officially hit 2 billion monthly users. This is a big number and it cements the position of Facebook as the most influential social media website there is. However, there still might be a long way to go for Zuckerberg and his creation.

According to Zuckerberg, the website had reached 1 billion users back in October 2012 and it took them almost 5 years to double the numbers. Some Facebook users have even quipped that Zuckerberg and the website is 5 billion users short of everyone in the world on the social media website.

While the goal of having everyone on Facebook is rather far-fetched, it looks like Zuckerberg is doing his aiming to connect everyone to on one social media platform. The new milestone doesn’t even fully satisfy the Facebook CEO. Stuff reports that in an interview at his company’s headquarters, the CEO revealed what he really aims on doing.

“What we really care about is being able to connect everyone. So two billion, there wasn’t as much fanfare around it,” he said. He added that  “we still haven’t connected everyone.” Connecting literally everyone is a rather daunting task even for Facebook as not all people have access to the website itself. But Zuckerberg is obviously aiming for more users in the next years.

For now, the next goal of the company is to reach another billion user count. Unless there’s a sudden surge in Facebook users, then we can expect the new goal to be reached in the next 5 years or so.
