Facebook has now officially hit 2bn monthly active users.

The milestone was announced in a post by CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the social network, which said: “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.”

As Zuckerberg mentioned in a reply to a comment, the company hit 1bn monthly users back in 2012, meaning it took five years to add another 1bn users.

The 2bn milestone comes thirteen years after the company was founded in February 2004.

And now, over 800m people Like something on the site every day, whereas 175m people say they love something.

Facebook wants people to celebrate by publishing a Good Adds Up video that they can make and share on the social network.
