Facebook wants everyone to know just how big and successful its mobile platform has become in a short period of time. In short: Very big. And very successful.
In a blog post this morning, Facebook’s James Pearce (Head of Mobile Develoepr Relations) trumpets several big stats about how the Facebook Platform has benefited mobile apps and games:
- more than 60 million visitors every month
- more than 320 million visits to mobile apps last month (January)
- traffic from Facebook Mobile to Yahoo’s mobile news app has increased 3.5x since February 14th to 1.6 million visitors per day
Pearce says that Facebook developers are benefiting from Open Graph implementation, and from social distribution through user news feeds, Timeline and similar channels. (Coincidentally, Apple just acquired Chomp to improve app discovery in Tunes and iOS.)
