Over one billion people used Facebook last Monday. This is the 
first time the site has had this many visitors in one day. The CEO of 
Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, said it was an important achievement for 
his company. He posted on his own Facebook profile that: "We just 
passed an important milestone. For the first time ever, one billion 
people used Facebook in a single day." He said that on Monday, "one 
in seven people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends 
and family". He added that: "This was the first time we reached this 
milestone, and it's just the beginning of connecting the whole world." 
Mr Zuckerberg also said a connected world, "brings stronger 
relationships with those you love".
Zuckerberg created Facebook in 2004, while he was a student 
at Harvard University. The website quickly became one of the 
biggest sites in the world. Today, it has nearly 1.5 billion users and 
Zuckerberg thinks that number will grow. In October 2012, he 
announced that Facebook had one billion users who used the site 
at least once a month. Three years later, the site had one billion 
visitors in just one day. Zuckerberg said the company needs to 
grow a lot in countries where Facebook isn't so popular, such as in 
many African and Asian countries and some in Central and South 
America. Facebook has made Zuckerberg the ninth richest person 
in the world, at the age of 31.
