Announced amid LeWeb 2012 in Paris this week, here are some of the key points:
- There are over 350 apps on FBook.com with more than 1million monthly active users each.
- Nearly 200,000 iPhone and Android apps are incorporated with FBook, including 9 of the top 10 grossing iPhone apps.
- More than 45% of the top 400 grossing iOS apps use the FBook SDK.
Justin Osofsky, FBook’s director of platform partnerships and operations, asserted in a blog post on Wednesday that the World’s largest social network “has become the social building block for some of the biggest cell phone and web apps across a different of categories.”
Some examples mentioned in the post include Pinterest, Kobo, and TripAdvisor.
Also highlighting UK-based Shazam, Osofsky noted that the international developer community is also getting more involved with Open Graph.
Additionally (and possibly in a nod to the host city for LeWeb this month), Osofsky cited that Paris is the second top city for Timeline app development, after San Francisco, for Open Graph submissions.
