At some point over the Christmas holiday, the number of mobile users of the Facebook website surpassed the 300 million mark, Enders Analysis analyst, Benedict Evans has noted, citing Facebook data.
In addition, Android overtook Apple in terms of daily usage, although as the breakthrough point was only this week, the historic figures still show an iOS dominance. More surprisingly, he noted that BlackBerry's also show high levels of Facebook usage, possibly reflecting their popularity with teenagers in some countries.
Based on the figures he has, Evans notes that 70% of mobile users and 30% of all users now use apps to access Facebook.
