The app rankings are interesting because Facebook's Messenger app has moved ahead of YouTube, putting the top two apps as Facebook-owned, ranking above the following three, which are Google's. Facebook's Instagram is further down the list at number nine.

Altogether, Google has greater reach with YouTube, Google Search, Google Play, Google Maps, and Gmail, but it's still interesting that Facebook now holds the top two spots.
