Facebook now has 1 billion users

You know what's cool? One billion friends. That's probably what Sean Parker would be saying to Mark Zuckerberg had Aaron Sorkin being writing today's announcement that Facebook now has 1 billion users.

"This morning, there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month," said Zuckerberg, for real, on the company's blog boasting the new numbers.

According to Zuckerberg: "Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life." He assured us he was: "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."

Facebook also said its users had shared some 219 billion photos and pressed the like button around the web more than 1.13 trillion times.

Hopefully those 1billion people won't all ask to be your friend at once.
