Facebook is a ubiquitous social network. It seems everyone is on the service (except my wife) including your entire family, most of your neighborhood – heck even your grandparents, most likely. To go along with this, it seems the rise in smartphones and mobile devices is benefiting Facebook as well.
Facebook announced today that they are up to 250 million mobile users, up from the 100 million they announced last February. This means that in just 14 months, Facebook’s mobile population has grown by more than 2x…wow!
While most Facebook users likely access the service through an app for their mobile phone, whether it’s for Android, iPhone or BlackBerry, the Facebook mobile website just got a revamp that should make the site better for mobile browsers as well. You see, those on advanced phones were directed to touch.facebook.com while those on smaller, cheaper featurephones has been directed to m.facebook.com — a degraded site that had lesser graphics and user interface.
This difference is no more as the two sites are now one.
Do you use Facebook on a mobile device? If so – how do you like to interact with the site…by updating status and posting photos? I look forward to learning from your use!
