Facebook had officially reached a milestone of one billion monthly active users worldwide, announced by Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. Started with 955 million active users in July 2012, though gaining 45 million users is not a small task, it seems however that the world’s biggest online social network took a little bit more time than expected to reach the milestone. The next one billion may come from China, the major market of 1.4 billion customers the company has not yet tapped. Again, this is not an easy task though because these customers have turned to their own homegrown social networks, including Renren, Sina, and Tencent, for being blocked by their local ISPs from reaching Facebook.
Anyway, topping the 1 billion mark means that Facebook now reaches one out of every 7 people on the planet. This ubiquitous social media giant allows you to connect to family, friends, and everyone at your school or within your organization. From marketer’s point of view, not all of Facebook users are created equal ("All men are created equal", Thomas Jefferson, 1776); Facebook users living in the U.S. and Canada are just a small group, but account more than 50% of Facebook advertising revenue. Facebook makes an average of $3.5 each quarter in revenue off its North American users, versus 41 cents from those in Asia. Therefore, it's time to make Facebook marketing work.
