NEW YORK — Facebook has topped 1 billion users, but the past few months have not been easy.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that the company is going through a bit of a rough patch following its rocky initial public offering.
Zuckerberg updated his Facebook status on Thursday to announce that the social networking site has more than 1 billion active users each month. He thanked users and said that he is committed to making Facebook better.
The Menlo Park, Calif.-based company has had a difficult time of late. There were trading glitches the day it went public in May and concerns since then about its revenue potential. It's also facing lawsuits from disgruntled shareholders.
