It’s an historical moment for Facebook as the social network passed the 2 billion users milestone and the founder, Mark Zuckerberg, marked this achievement with a post on its page.

“As of this morning, the Facebook community is now officially 2 billion people! We’re making progress connecting the world, and now let’s bring the world closer together. It’s an honor to be on this journey with you”, wrote Zuckerberg in his post.

The social network was founded in February 2004 and it reached its first billion users in 8 year and 8 months, in October 2012, so it gained 1 billion more users in half that time. So who said that Facebook is going out of fashion?
