Of course, for Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, it would mean the world and then some.
Perhaps the most important thing for Zuckerberg would be that he was right about his prediction. When Facebook reached 500 million users last July, Zuckerberg said that it would be impossible for Facebook not to reach 1 billion users.
That’s roughly equivalent to 16 to 20 percent of the world’s population. But that is not to say that there really are 1 billion Facebook users with one Facebook account each or that all of the 1 billion accounts are actually actively being used in a meaningful way.
Still, what if each Facebook user was actually worth $10 each?
