Following up the announcement that it’s acquiring Oculus VR for around $2 billion, Facebook also shared some numbers about its growth, because why not?

On the acquisition conference call, CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that, as of last week, Facebook has 1 billion monthly active users on mobile. That’s up from 945 million as of the end of its most recent quarter.

Zuckerberg also said that Instagram, which Facebook owns, has reached 200 million monthly actives, up from 150 million last fall. In a just-published blog post, Instagram added, “As we exceed 20 billion photos shared on Instagram to date, we look back in wonder at the beauty and importance of everything this community has created.”
