Facebook made an Advert for having 1 Billion Monthly Users

To celebrate that they have 1 billion active monthly users Facebook made an advert. The first question is, if you have that many people using your service do you need to advertise the fact?

Here is what Mark Zuckerberg had to say about hitting the 1 Billion mark. No Doctor Evil maniacal laughter please.

This morning, there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month.

If you’re reading this: thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you.

Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life.

I am committed to working every day to make Facebook better for you, and hopefully together one day we will be able to connect the rest of the world too.

From the advert Facebook is just like a chair amongst other things.

“Chairs. They’re made so people can sit down and take a break. Anyone can sit on a chair and if the chair is a large enough they can sit down together and tell jokes or make up stories or just listen. Chairs are for people and that’s why chairs are like Facebook.”

I see what they are trying to do, but not sure if it works.

What are your thoughts on the ad?
