1.44 Billion People, Facebook Is Bigger Than China

Facebook announced their quarterly earnings yesterday and the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg posted a statement and picture on his wall.

“We just announced our quarterly earnings and gave an update on our community’s progress to connect the world.

Our community now has more than 1.44 billion people. Here are some other highlights from our quarter that show the scale of what we’re all building together.

Thank you for being a part of our community, and for helping to connect the world,” said Zuckerberg at Facebook HQ.

The company’s monthly active users were 1.44 billion in March, a 13% increase over last year. Mobile users were at 1.25 billion, 70% of all users.

With this new data Facebook’s monthly user number officially surpassed the population of China.
