Facebook hits 1 billion installs, first non-Google app to do so


There have been a few Google services that have been downloaded over a billion times, but with the apps being pre-installed on all Google approved Android devices, it makes sense that they would get there first. But many Google apps still haven’t reached that point, and a third party app has overtaken them to the 1 billion downloads mark.

Everyone’s favorite app has reached the milestone! Facebook for Android is the first non-Google app to break the 1 billion downloads mark. Of course it would be Facebook, many carriers preload it onto their devices and many people can’t live without it. But to be fair, the app has come a long way from its terrible origins.

How many of you aren’t running Facebook for Android?
