London: Founder and chief executive of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has revealed that one in nine people now have a account on the social networking site as 750 million across the world have signed up to it.
That is more than 12 times the 61 million population of the UK and more than twice the size of the combined population of the US and Canada.
Zuckerberg revealed the figure and also disclosed that the amount of information users share every day on the site has doubled in the last year, reports the Telegraph.
Zuckerberg made the announcement as he launched a new feature, which will allow users to chat by video.
Facebook will have a new ‘call’ button, which users can click and then talk with other people with an account via Skype.
