This means that one billion accounts on Facebook are used actively in a single month.
Only last year, Facebook was reported to have 800 million active users. That is a incredibly strong growth.
Google+ also reported touching the mark of 100 million monthly active users but that pretty much shows the size of Facebook. It see atleast 10 times more activity on it.

This morning, there are more than one billion people using Facebook actively each month.
If you’re reading this: thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you.
Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life.
I am committed to working every day to make Facebook better for you, and hopefully together one day we will be able to connect the rest of the world too.
This will be some good news for Facebook which has been asked a lot of questions on how it will make money as more and more people switch to mobile platforms.
