That is a lot of Facebook users using their mobile smart phones to update and check their social network.
Here’s some more information about the amount of Facebook mobile users:
“According to new data from Benedict Evans for Enders Analysis, the number of monthly active users of Facebook’s mobile apps recently passed the 300 million mark. This is primarily due to heavy use of the iOS and Android apps, but it also takes into account apps that run on BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Phone, iPad and feature phones.
That number equates to roughly 40% of Facebook’s currently disclosed 800 million active users.”
It will be interesting to see how Facebook continues to grow, how the number of its mobile users increases, as well as if it will continue to be the top social networking site or if another one will begin to become more popular.
