Even after all the criticism and skepticism over its pattern of altering privacy controls, Facebook has passed a remarkable milestone of 500 million users.
It is a big day for Zuckerberg and he finally comes out of his nest to be interviewed by Diane Sawyer on ABC News. Zuckerberg, who avoids such high profile public appearances would probably have to answer about the 500 million users mark, the facebook movie and even about the privacy issues that they had earlier this year.
Zuckerberg says, “I could have never imagined all of the ways people would use Facebook when we were getting started 6 years ago. I want to thank you for being part of making Facebook what it is today and for spreading it around the world.” But he is all confident and ready to see the 1 billion users mark. With this galloping pace of facebook’s growth, 1 billion is not far behind.
