“We just announced our quarterly results and gave an update on our community’s progress in making the world more open and connected.
Our community now has 1.8 billion people. We hit the milestone of 1.2 billion people using our apps every day.
Our biggest focus has been putting video first across our apps. People are creating and sharing more video than ever, so we’re building new tools to make it easier to express yourself in creative ways.
The number of people going Live on Facebook at any moment has grown by 4x since May. We launched Instagram Stories less than 3 months ago, and already more than 100 million people are using it every day. We’re also building a brand new camera across our apps and we’ll be adding even more visual messaging tools over the next few months.
Our community has a lot to be proud of this quarter. Thanks for being a part of this journey to connect the world.”
Some more nice graphs.
Facebook’s investment and focus on video seems to be showing strong returns. Viewership is massive, and it’s allowing Facebook to slip more and more high-priced video ads into the feed.
