Facebook Hits One Billion Users

On September 14, Facebook achieved another magical milestone – one billion monthly active users – according to an announcement earlier this week by Mark Zuckerberg. That means 1 billion users check the site every month.

Some more Facebook stats to amaze:

  • People have made 140 billion friend connections on Facebook.
  • As it matures, Facebook users are getting younger: The median age of a user joining today is about 22, down from 23 for a user who joined at the time the site hit 500 million users.
  • Facebook now also has 600 million mobile users.

Since Facebook launched, we’ve seen:

  • Over 1.13 trillion likes since launch in February 2009
  • 219 billion photos uploaded
  • 17 billion location‐tagged posts, including check‐ins
  • 62.6 million songs have been played 22 billion times ‐ that’s about 210,000 years of music
