Facebook Messenger reaches 1 billion users

Facebook has yet another service that has reached 1 billion users.
The company's "Messenger" messaging and payments service hit the milestone this month, following in the footsteps of Facebook itself, and WhatsApp. The company's Instagram photo-sharing service has 500 million users, as well.

"As part of this journey to 1 billion, we focused on creating the best possible experiences in modern day communications. We remain focused on helping connect people to the people and businesses who matter most," said David Marcus, VP of Messenger, in a statement.

Less importantly, Facebook also says 22 million GIFs are sent via Messenger daily.

Come back to us when HALF of the world's population are on FB. Meanwhile, 1/7th is nothing special to a site that pretty much EVERYONE across the globe use to reach long lost companions.

Err, this isn't about Facebook, it';s about Facebook Messenger, which is a different animal.
