I'm a huge Facebook users, and upload heaps of pics on a weekly, or daily basis - but just how many photos were uploaded over the New Year's Day and New Year's Eve period? An insane, and record-breaking 1.1 billion photos.

The social network sees around 300 million photos uploaded on an average day, so that is a huge spike in uploads. The 2010 NYE and New Year's Day period saw just 750 million photos uploaded. Facebook's total collection of users' photos now exceeds 240 billion, which founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced at the Graph Search launch on Tuesday.

 

All of these 240 billion photos will be indexed within Facebook's new internal search engine.
