Facebook Now Boasts 1 Billion Active Members

Last Quarter Facebook announced that they are approaching the Billon User mark. And here it is. Finally its official, Facebook now has got more than 1 Billion Active users.

Hack The Graph -- This Is What They Call

Facebook is now the world's biggest social network. The Growth is slowing down from the past couple of years, but still boy they have kicked everyone off the game now. Google+ feels more of a Ghost Town now. 

This morning Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook) wrote on his timeline: 

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.

Accompanying the release is a fact sheet, which says the milestone was reached on September 14 at 12:45 PM PST, and breaks down some really impressive statistics. Since Facebook launched, it has seen 1.13 trillion Likes, 140.3 billion friend connections, 219 billion photos uploaded, 17 billion location-tagged posts (including check-ins) and over 62.6 million songs (played 22 billion times)

This is how they celebrated

Well, just everyone came together and counted down. Then we all went back to work. We have this ethos where we want to be a culture of builders, right?

We don’t want to overly celebrate any particular milestone, so what we do is we have hackathons. We have themed hackathons for different things. We’re having a hackathon to celebrate this when we announce it publicly, and the theme is going to be the next billion. So people will be thinking of ideas and working on prototypes and things that we’ll need to do to help connect the next billion people, which I think is pretty cool.
