Its all a bit too much I think. Facebook officially reached 1 billion monthly active users Sept. 14 at 12:45 p.m. PT, Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed in a post on the social network’s Newsroom.
Check out the video Facebook released to celebrate 1 Billion Members.
They went with a theme of Chairs, doorbells, bridges, airplanes. These are things that people use to get together and connect. Weird? I think its completely unrelated and stupid.

Some more stats:
The social network said during its second-quarter earnings call July 26 that it had reached 955 million monthly average users, so it was only a matter of time before the milestone occurred.
Facebook offered more statistics in a Word document attached to Zuckerberg’s Newsroom post:
- More than 1.13 trillion likes since launching the feature in February 2009.
- 140.3 billion friend connections.
- 219 billion photos uploaded, with that figure reaching around 265 billion if deleted photos are added to the total. Photo uploading launched on Facebook in the fall of 2005.
- 17 billion location-tagged posts, including check-ins, since the launch of the feature in August 2010.
- Since music-listening applications launched in September 2011, 62.6 million songs have been played 22 billion times, representing about 210,000 years of music.
- The median age of Facebook users is about 22.
- The top five countries in terms of people connected when the 1 billion mark was reached, in alphabetical order, were Brazil, India, Indonesia, Mexico, and the U.S.
- The social network also surpassed 600 million mobile users.
Zuckerberg wrote in his Newsroom post:
This morning, there are more than 1 billion people using Facebook actively each month.
If you’re reading this: Thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you.
Helping 1 billion people connect is amazing, humbling, and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life.
I am committed to working every day to make Facebook better for you, and hopefully, together, one day, we will be able to connect the rest of the world, too.
