Don't you just love facebook? Well join the line because because Facebook has just reached a landmark of one billion users which is approximately 1/7th of the world's population. So 14% of the people living in this world are registered monthly Facebook users.

Mark Zuckerberg broke the good news on his facebook this morning saying:



"This morning, there are more than one 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 a 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." Quote by Mark Zuckerberg.

One billion monthly active users is actually quite a milestone because Facebook was only founded in 2004, so it took Facebook 8 years alone to reach that figure.

Facebook's servers are currently storing 219 billion photos from users. With 265 billion uploaded at one time or another, about 17 percent of all photos ever put on Facebook have been deleted.


Some other statistics announced by Facebook:

140.3 billion friend connections since 2004.

Over 1.13 trillion "Likes" since the button was added in 2009.

62.6 million songs have been played 22 billion times. According to Facebook, that's 210,000 years of listening.
