Social networking website Facebook has passed the one billion customer accounts landmark of which the company says 600 million visit the mobile website at least once per month.
In a very brief comment, Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg said simply "Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life."
The issued a series of stats to show how big its service is, such as that Facebook drives 170 million referrals to Apple's App Store and Google Play every month, and that 55% of the top 40 grossing iOS apps are integrated with Facebook.
Amongst the stats though, the company has still failed to reassure investors that it can generate meaningful revenues from its customers, and the weakness in mobile services is still a considerable concern.
