Posted Friday, October 5th 2012 @ 7am


Facebook celebrated one billion users yesterday by releasing a new ad.

Check out The 90-second ad appearing on Facebook...and how he talks about chairs that connect us.

The company actually reached the one-billionth user record last month on Sept. 14. Facebook has also pointed out that there have been over 1.13 trillion likes, 140.3 billion friend connections, and 219 billion photos uploaded since the launch in February 2009.

Google is the only other Internet company that's ever hit the one billion user mark.  They crossed the threshold last year.  Yahoo is third with about 700 million.

There are approximately 2.5 billion people on the Internet.  About 500 million of them are in China, which blocks access to Facebook.
