Facebook Storms 1 billion active users

Facebook has reached 1 billion active users, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaking to NBC News' Today show .

The social network, which started in a dorm room in 2004, reached the historic milestone on September 14 at 12:45 p.m. PT, which now puts one-in-seven people in the world on the social network.

According to NBC News, the milestone does not include bots or fake users -- which Facebook"tracks closely" -- but real people with an account who logs into the site every month.

If Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest in the world, behind China with 1.34 billion and India with 1.2 billion.

In a note on Facebook's online newsroom , Zuckerberg said: "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 abillion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life," he added. According to the figures, Facebook has seen:

*. 1.18 trillion "likes";
*. 140.4 billion friend connections;
*. 219 billion photos shared (265 billion photos including all uploaded photos);
*. 17 billion location check-ins;
*. 62.6 million songs played 22 billion times (since September 2011).

Facebook says the median age of the user is 22 years old, whereas when the social network hit 500 million users in July 2010, the median age was 23. By this point, users signing up at this point now have an average of 305 friends.

The company also has more than 600 million mobile users -- up by 48 million from 552 million in June -- a key metric for those in developing nations who may not have stable access to a fixed-line Internet connection.

Facebook's shares were up by more than 1 percent to $22 a sharein pre-market trading.
