According to Mobile Beat, one in four Facebook users access the social networking juggernaut through their mobile devices. What’s that in real numbers? About 100 million users (Facebook has over 400 million registered users).
While many users may simply use their cell phones to update their statuses or read messages, the number of users doing so is growing fast, as, back in September, the total number of mobile surfers was 65 million.
Facebook understands the draw for users to be able to access the site’s features while away from a computer, as they offer a slew of options for each user, depending on their phone, service provider or online capabilities. The most basic of these is the ability to update one’s status through an SMS text message, or receive similar updates about those whom you subscribe to.
Meanwhile, Facebook has revamped the site’s appearance and functionality for those that browse with touch-based devices, and now works with over 80 mobile operators, giving most people the chance to stay connected 24/7, should they choose to do so.
