    That is an amazing statistic, well done FaceBook. I'd like to build a social site that one billion people use, even a million would be a good start :)

    It's probably safe to assume that some of those are duplicate accounts and others are fake accounts, I wonder what the figure would be for the number of unique individuals using FaceBook.

    Probably wouldn't make too big of a dent. I'm sure the real outweighs the fake. But I myself have many accounts on there.

    I'm sure there is a pretty large number, but clearly they have hundreds of millions of real users. Not a billion, but still an amazingly large number.

    Whether or not it's fake is irrelevant. There are 1 billion ACTIVE users on Facebook each month so fake profiles or not, it's still being used by real people.

    Well I am not bigger fan of facebook or any other social media so I doesn't want to congrant/say any good wishes for facebook. Just a bit of suggestion : facebook should be more focused to connecting communities not on wasting people time/promoting evil sides of internet.

    Sadly, 1 billion active members does not help FB recover stock price to par level. That amount of number could be due to social media optimization, majority webmaster recommend setup a fans page, but amount spend to FB ads is lower compare to PPC and display ads.
