Facebook had 341 million mobile-only active users during Q2 2014
Facebook, the social network that almost everybody loves to hate, but eventually logs into at the end of the day, just revealed that among its 1.32 billion monthly active users, 399 million users have only accesses the social network through their mobile devices through Q2 2014. This was announced along with Facebook's quarter financial report for Q2 2014. Apparently, that's a 15% increase in comparison with the first quarter of the current year, when Facebook's mobile-only users were gravitating near the 341-million mark.
Some 654 million users go through their Facebook walls via their mobile devices every day. What's more, the report makes it clear that a little over 1 billion users – 1,070 million – log into their Facebook accounts both from their mobile devices and the full-blown desktop version of the social network.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg: "We had a good second quarter."Interestingly enough, the year-over-year results are equally impressive, too. Back in Q2 2013, only 219 million Facebook users got to like selfies and other kinds of viral posts through their smartphones. If we were mathematicians, we would have said that this is an 82-percent spike, but we are tech geeks here, folks, so we can only say that Facebook has scored a grand victory in the battle for more users. After all, the regular Facebook app usually sits on the top of the popularity charts on both Google Play and Apple's App Store.
Recently, Facebook launched several new apps, such as a Snapchat look-alike, Slingshot, and Mentions, which is nicknamed “the Facebook for celebrities”. Still, nothing can beat the popularity of the regular Facebook app and its message-centric spin-off, Facebook Messenger.
