Facebook surpassed 900 million active users last month, according to a regulatory filing, helping the social network post more than $1 billion in sales in the first quarter.
But the company's growth rate, though still staggering, continues to slow. Facebook's monthly active user count -- the number of users that engage with the site at least once a month -- grew by 33% in the first quarter over the first quarter of 2011. A year ago, the network was growing at a 58% annual clip, and in the first quarter of 2010, that number was more than doubling.
