Facebook is one such company that is growing by leaps and bounds. Its success story is something everybody knows and loves and takes inspiration from. From the dorm room of a Harvard boy to the now huge revenues, the company has come a long way and so has its co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. But the best part is, it is still the beginning. It had some 750 million users in 2011 which have now risen to an astounding 1.6 billion.
The numbers are increasing everyday and Zuckerberg expects that it will continue to do so exponentially over the next decade. Zuckerberg’s prediction says that by 2030, Facebook will have 5 billion users and as to how he thinks it would be accomplished, he says: “We want to finish connecting everyone; we’re going to do it in partnership with governments and different companies all over the world.”
The present day population of the world is 7 billion which by 2030 may reach 8.5 billion according to the United Nations. So if Facebook aims to have 5 billion users by 2030, it is super impressive. Meanwhile, the company will continue to work towards its initiatives like bringing the internet to far-flung, underdeveloped areas of the developing world using drones as well as the very controversial programme of Internet.org. sales to U.S. governmental agencies.
