Commenting on this milestone, Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, Facebook, said: This morning there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month. 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."

As for the mobile usage, statistics showed that 600 million people are using Facebook on mobile devices at least once a month. Facebook is accessed from more than 7,000 different types of mobile devices and drives 170 million referrals to Apple’s App Store and Google Play every month.

Numbers also showed that 185,000 iOS and Android apps are built with Facebook integration and 55% of the top 40 grossing iOS apps are integrated with Facebook.

According to Facebook, more than nine million apps and websites are integrated with Facebook and more than 7,000 timeline apps have been launched since Open Graph opened to all developers in Jan 2012. Facebook App Center has more than 220 million monthly active users and more than 235 million people play games on Facebook.com every month.
