To give some context to that number, in July Facebook said that more than 100 million photos get uploaded every day (that average is higher now, obviously). Here’s another stat: Flickr had its 5 billionth photo uploaded in September 2010 — Facebook would get that in a week or two if photos were uploaded at the rate they were last weekend. That’s a little apples-to-oranges (though Facebook does now offer support for high quality image uploads), but it gives a sense of the scale of Facebook Photos.
