Facebook has reported its 2015 first quarter financial records and it ain’t bad at all.
According to the publicly-traded social network, it now has 1.44 billion monthly active users worldwide. That’s 50 million more users than the entire estimated population of China.
In a statement to the media, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg called the report “a good quarter and a good start to the year.”
“We’re building this family of apps because we want people to be able to share whatever they want,” Zuckerberg said. “We expect people to share richer content with increasing frequency, so we want to continue developing new tools and facilitating this expression.”
Facebook launched to the public in December 2004, and experienced relatively slow user growth for its first four years.
