Facebook is changing the metric "Monthly Active Users" to "Monthly Active People" #CodeCon

CTO Mike Schroepfer disclosed the change during the Code Conference today, when he took the stage with COO Sheryl Sandberg. The impetus behind it was, of course, to help employees remember that Facebook users are real, human people.
Congrats, Facebook has deemed you a person.
