They have 1 billion users, but that's not Facebook's only amazing statistic. There are a lot more, starting with a staggering 1.13 trillion likes. One point thirteen trillion likes, people. It's crazy. Here are the rest of their stats, compiled since the first day of Facebook:
Over 1.13 trillion likes
since launch in February 2009. Wow.
140.3 billion friend connections
to one billion total users. Is everyone connected to everyone or what, Kevin Bacon?
219 billion photos.
These are photos actually in the system, not including the deleted ones. They believe they have had 265 billion photos in their servers since fall 2005. Flickr is weeping.
17 billion location-tagged posts,
including check-ins as of September 10, 2012—since August 2010.
210,000 years of music played so far.
62.6 million songs that have been played 22 billion times. The most staggering fact about this: their music-listening app only started in September 2011 and this data is from September 11, 2012.
More useless but neat facts:
• Facebook says that the median age of the user is about 22 years.
• The top five countries, in alphabetical order, where people connected from since the 1 billion user record was achieved: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the United States.
• Of that 1 billion, there are 600 million mobile users. Not bad.
