Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this morning that his social network now has more than 1 billion active monthly users. “Thank you for giving me and my little team the honor of serving you,” he said in his statement. And for making him a billionaire, of course.

“Helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life,” Zuckerberg added. “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.” Congratulations Facebook, that’s quite an accomplishment.
