Facebook tops 1 billion users, CEO Zuckerberg concedes co. in a tough cycle
By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, October 4, 3:39 PM
NEW YORK More than a billion people now log into Facebook each month to check up on old friends, tag photos of new ones and post about politics, religion, cats or what their kids are doing.
Thats double the 500 million it hit in July 2010 what now seems like a lifetime but was a little more than two years ago. August 2008 marked another big juncture, 100 million users.
The latest milestone also amounts to nearly half of the worlds roughly 2.5 billion Internet users, as measured by the International Telecommunications Union.
So who are these people?

I hope Zuckerberg is investing in things other than FB. My bet is that it'll just be a memory in 5-10 years,

...CEO Mark Zuckerberg marked the milestone on his Facebook page, as he has in the past when the sites users hit nice round numbers.
If youre reading this: thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of
serving harvesting you, he wrote. Helping Harvesting data of a billion people connect is amazing, humbling immensely profitable and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life.
