Mark Zuckerberg has announced that Facebook hits 1 billion Active Users.

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg has announced that the Social Media site Facebook has reached 1 Billion Active users Today.

Mark Zuckerberg has updated his Facebook Status with below announcement.

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.

And, Facebook has shared key metrics. Read below some of them.

- Facebook has seen Over 1.13 trillion likes since launch in February 2009
- 140.3 billion friend connections
- 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
- Facebook now has 600M mobile users
- The median age of the user is about 22
- The top five countries where people connected from were Brazil, India, Indonesia,Mexico and the United States (NOTE: in alphabetical order)

And, in another Facebook Status update Mark Zuckerberg has mentioned that Facebook is similar to Chairs, doorbells, airplanes, bridges, games which connect people.

Celebrating a billion people is very special to me. It's a moment to honor the people we serve.

For the first time in our history, we've made a brand video to express what our place is on this earth.

We believe that the need to open up and connect is what makes us human. It's what brings us together. It's what brings meaning to our lives.

Facebook isn't the first thing people have made to help us connect. We belong to a rich tradition of people making things that bring us together.

Today, we honor this tradition.

We honor the humanity of the people we serve.

We honor the everyday things people have always made to bring us together:

Chairs, doorbells, airplanes, bridges, games. These are all things that connect us.

And now Facebook is a part of this tradition of things that connect us too.

I hope you enjoy this video as much as we do.

Thanks for helping connect a billion people.
