In its second quarter earnings results, Facebook revealed that it now has over 1.15 billion monthly active users, 819 million mobile monthly active users and 699 million daily active users.
Facebook’s overall user base grew 21 percent year-over-year, while its mobile division notched 51 percent growth during the period.
“We’ve made good progress growing our community, deepening engagement and delivering strong financial results, especially on mobile,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement. “The work we’ve done to make mobile the best Facebook experience is showing good results and provides us with a solid foundation for the future.”
The second quarter numbers are up from the 1.11 billion monthly active users, 751 million mobile users and 665 million daily users Facebook had in the first quarter of 2013. The company first passed the 1 billion user mark last October and achieved 1.06 billion users by the end of 2012.
Second quarter revenue was up to $1.81 billion from $1.18 billion a year ago. GAAP net income for the second quarter was $333 million and diluted GAAP earnings per share were $0.13. Investors have been impressed with Facebook’s performance, pushing the stock up 15 percent in after-hours trading.
Earlier this week, Facebook announced that its “Facebook for Every Phone” initiative for feature phones had passed 100 million monthly active users.
