Facebook App Economy [Infographic]By: Shawn Hess - June 18, 2012
Yes, Facebook may be a great place to socialize and reconnect with old friends, but they’ve also sent over 160 million users to mobile apps in the month of February alone.
In May, those numbers began to increase as they launched their App Center to drive installs of mobile apps.
Seven out of ten of the top grossing iOS apps are integrated with Facebook. Six out of ten of Android’s top grossing apps are also integrated with Facebook. That’s very impressive.
Facebook applications have spawned an entirely new industry. So far, that industry has contributed almost $16 billion to our economy and Facebook users are installing apps at the rate of 20 million per day. Also very impressive.
