Facebook’s Mobile Products Have 200 Million Users

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said today that the company’s mobile products now have more than 200 million users. That’s up from 150 million announced over the summer and triple the size from last year, when the company had 65 million mobile users. That means nearly 40 percent of the company’s active users are accessing it through mobile devices.

The company has invested heavily in mobile both to get existing users using the site beyond their computers, while also looking to reach people who have little or no internet access aside from their phones. It has steadily built out its applications for iOS devices, Android devices, and other phones, developed more and more features for the mobile version of Connect, and partnered with carriers to create offerings like 0.facebook.com, a service where users can get special access to Facebook as part of an upsell for carrier data plans.
