Facebook Earnings: Just Under a Billion Users, Just Over a Billion Revenue

By Brian Barrett on at

There are 955 million people in this world with Facebook accounts, and they collectively poured $1.18 billion (£752 million) into Zuck & Co.'s coffers these last three months. Which, hey, not a bad welcome to Wall Street!

Of those 955 million total users, Facebook sees 552 million accessing the site daily, and a total of 543 million users signing on from mobile devices. And the revenues, of $1.085 billion, are a 45% increase over last year's number and some modest comfort to people who pegged their pensions to the company's much-maligned IPO. [Facebook]
