New Delhi: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says he aims to have five billion users by 2030, which means nearly 60 percent of the human race would be connected to the social network site if his wish comes true.

 

Zuckerberg made the comments earlier this week during an event at the company’s new Frank Gehry-designed headquarters designed to celebrate Facebook’s 12th anniversary Thursday, February 4, which it has dubbed Friends Day.

"We want to finish connecting everyone, we're going to do it in partnership with governments and different companies all over the world," Zuckerberg said during an event celebrating Facebook's 12th anniversary.

Headquartered in Menlo Park, California, at the start of October 2012, Facebook had passed the monthly active users mark of one billion. The company's data also revealed 600 million mobile users, 140 billion friend connections since the inception of Facebook, and the median age of a user as 22 years.

On Thursday, Facebook celebrated its 12 birthday as 'Friends Day' by releasing several new feautures, including a new video product for its users.
