FBI spies on how many?

He's asking for US citizens. There are roughly 300 million of them, so that's your upper limit.

Wikipedia estimates 280 million Internet users, not all of whom will be citizens.

So my guess is around a quarter of a billion if we include spying done on the NSA's behalf by other agencies, but that wasn't the question asked.
