Android passes to extend the operating system iOS users of social networks, if the number of active members of Facebook can talk about anything. Today, the number of people using a Facebook application for Symbian platform Google, more than those who came out to the biggest social network with a client for the iPhone.
Figures which published research company Enders Analysis, said that in November last year monthly Facebook-app for Android open 192,800,000 users. In this case, a similar indicator for iPhone was 147,200,000 people. A year ago, when Facebook released the official statistics, the situation was the opposite - a monthly mobile client for Android enjoyed 66 million people, and the official program of the social network for iOS launched 91 million monthly users.
Understanding the decided advantage of mobile platforms over personal computers, Facebook released in the middle of last year, a completely new version of the corporate client for iOS. Previous application built on HTML5, not a high speed, the program was characterized by regular crashes and constant loading of data. The new version of the company to correct the situation.
We also know that Facebook encourages its developers to ensure that improved formal application for Android. To this end, the administration of Facebook encourages them to abandon the iPhone in favor of smartphones in the mobile platform Google. Posters of such calls are hung around the office Internet Corporation.
The reason lies not in the inadequacy iPhone, but the desire to improve the management of social network official applications for the mobile platform Google. As it turned out, creating applications for Android are people who actually do not use this OS. However, employees do not give up Facebook iPhone, just buy more smartphones based on Android.
