Dedicated Servers from Liquid Web

We just shared our quarterly results and gave an update on our community’s progress to connect the world.

Our community now has 1.7 billion people. We hit milestones of 1 billion people on Messenger and 500 million on Instagram each month.

We successfully flew Aquila — our solar-powered plane designed to beam internet to remote parts of the world.

We saw people use Live video in new and profound ways, from Candace Payne in her Chewbacca mask to Members of Congress sitting in on the floor of the House of Representatives.

And we worked to give you new ways to share — like 360 photos, including the one below with highlights from the quarter.

Thanks to everyone in our community for being a part of this journey to connect the world.
