With 750 million people using it, Facebook has become one of the most far-reaching computer platforms of all time.

The company will have a billion users soon, most likely within the next few months. Zuckerberg has been promising to hit that milestone for awhile, and I see no reason that he’ll miss. Sure, the social network may be inflating its numbers — and competition from Google+ could slow it down, somewhat. Given Facebook’s momentum, though, eventually Zuck will hit his mark. It’s just a question of when.

When he does, this will put Facebook in an extremely elite group that few other companies have matched.
