Facebook reveals mobile member numbers

Facebook has just revealed it had 432 million active mobile monthly users as of December 31, 2011. A new SEC filing following Facebook's IPO application showed that just over 13 percent of its users access the social network solely through mobile devices. The numbers represent a growth of 76 percent from the year previously, with 245 million members at the end of 2010.

Facebook estimates some 58 million users accessed the social network through mobile apps or the mobile website during December of 2011. No breakdown of the kind of phone or device was made, however. The other 374 million users accessed Facebook from both mobile devices and conventional computers.

Facebook credits the amount of mobile users to improved products. The feature phone interface was improved after Facebook acquired Snaptu in March, while the iPad app was launched in October. [via Inside Facebook]
