Within its earnings update in July 2015, Facebook said month-to-month active users increased 13 percent from a year ago to 1.49 billion. Facebook boasted of the new benchmark Thursday in its apparently inexorable march to Internet ubiquity: a billion individuals used the social network in one day.
“We just passed a significant milestone,” chief executive and co-founder Draw Zuckerberg declared inside a post on his Facebook page.
“On Mon, 1 in 7 people that is known used Facebook to touch base with their relatives and buddies.”
“When we look at our financials, most of us use average amounts, but this differs,” Zuckerberg added.
“This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it’s just the beginning of connecting the full world”
Zuckerberg also submitted a video specializing in the achievement.
Within its earnings update last month, Facebook said month-to-month active users surged 13 percent from a year ago to 1.49 billion.
Facebook on Thursday also said it’s building new technologies that video creators may use to guard next to their works being copied at the social network without having permission.
“This technology is tailored to our platform and allows these creators to spot matches of their particular videos on Facebook or Myspace across pages, profiles, groups, and geographies,”a short article said.
“Our matching device will evaluate an incredible number of video uploads quickly and accurately, when matches appeared, publishers will manage to report them to us for elimination.”
Facebook planned to soon begin testing the newest matching technology which has a select group regarding partners, including mass media companies.
The California-based social network said that it’s got word from several publishers that videos can be uploaded to Facebook or Myspace without permission inside a practice often called “freebooting.”
Facebook is using a Hearable Magic system that uses audio “fingerprinting” to spot and block copyrighted videos from turning it into the social network without proper consent.
“We want creators to obtain credit for the videos they own,” Facebook or Myspace they said.
“To deal with this, we are already exploring ways to further improve our rights management tools to higher empower creators to overpower how their video clips are shared in Facebook.”
