Facebook has 1 Billion Active Users

Mark Zuckerberg appeared today in NBC's Today Show for an interview. Facebook made the announcement of crossing the 1 billion active user mark part of the PR push. Facebook reached already the 1 billion monthly active users on September 14 at 12.45 PM Pacific time.

The whole fantasy behind Facebook's market value is the huge size of the user base. The question is still if Zuckerberg can crack the code to milk the 1 billion users for cash to drive renues.

Below are some more fun facts that Facebook published today.

  • Over 1.13 trillion likes since launch in February 2009 
  • 140.3 billion friend connections
  • 219 billion photos uploaded 
    • Data was pulled on 9/10/2012, and represents the total # of photos currently on this site – in other words, it excludes deleted photos.  If we wanted to include all photos ever uploaded, the estimate we have is 265 billion. Photo uploading launched fall 2005.
  • 17 billion location-tagged posts, including check-ins
    • Includes location-tagged posts as well as check-ins. Data was pulled 9/10/2012, and represents total location-tagged posts & check-ins since launch of the product in August 2010

    About the Geek Mind

    The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

    The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
