Facebook Mobile Growth

Facebook hit another milestone in their relentless push to own the Internets. They want as many people as possible to be able to access the social network and now boast that 100 million people actively use Facebook from their mobile devices every month. This makes Facebook Mobile bigger than Twitter!

That's an incredible statistic and this comes less than six months after they announced 65 million people on Facebook Mobile. Providing support for all major device manufacturers including Nokia, Android, Windows Mobile, Sidekick, Blackberry, INQ, Sony Ericsson, Palm and the iPhone.

This growth rate looks set to continue as Facebook adds more mobile users faster than it is adding web users! I'm always checking what's happening on the social network and with Push Notifications and the increased potential as a news reader; I'm hooked. I feel that the Events could be improved though because recommendations based on Pages and import habits could open many possibilities. have a great system in place based on listening preferences and incorporating similar functionality would be a further lock-in fearture. What features would you like to see improved?
