Popular social networking website Facebook has crossed 100 million users in India, it has announced. Furthermore, more than 84 million of the users are connected through the mobile, it has stated.


Talking about this milestone and its significance for India, Kevin D’Souza, Head of Growth & Mobile Partnerships, Facebook India, said: “The internet not only connects us to our friends, families and communities, it is also the foundation of a global knowledge economy. Today, we have more than 100 million people who access Facebook actively in India each month. We’ve only just begun. Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share, and to make the world more open and connected.”


Adding further, D’Souza said: “We recently announced internet.org, a global partnership with the goal of connecting the next 5 billion people around the world, to make the same access and opportunity available to everyone. It is with this in mind that we look towards like-minded partners who want to innovate, and share the same vision as us, to understand better how internet access can be increased to reach millions more people across India.”
