“CEO Mark Zuckerberg today noted during the companyâ€™s earnings call that 48 percent of users on a given day are only accessing it from mobile.”
It doesn’t get any more non-techie than that, all those social animals sharing… If 48% only access FB from a mobile gadget then it’s likely that they are not accessing other web sites differently. It may even be that many of them do not own a legacy PC… SEC filings show this trend is growing:
- The previous quarterly report showed a steady trend of growth in all visitors to around 1100 per month:
- and around 3/4 being mobile:
If it is true that about half of visitors are mobile-only, it could mean that half don’t own a legacy PC… Amazing. I’ll bet most are running Android/Linux, too. That’s hundreds of millions using Free Software on their clients and M$’s monopoly on the client OS is sinking fast in installed base. What’s that, about 50%? That’s in line with Wikipedia’s ~50% (10.9% */Linux = 8.5% Android/Linux + 2.4% GNU/Linux). Good riddance to monopoly.
