Facebook Hits 1 Billion Users
Facebook is topping 1 billion users. That means nearly one out of every seven people on the planet has a Facebook account.
In just six years, Facebook reached the 500 million user mark. Less than two years later, it hit the 1 billion bullseye.
Most of the newer users live outside of North America, where growth has leveled off.
The next big target for Facebook is China and its 1.3 billion population. But that won't be easy, because the communist country currently blocks Facebook from its citizens.
