Facebook boasts new developer stats especially on mobile

    With well over a year underway after Open Graph was first announced, Facebook released some big statistics intended to plzz developers.

    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.
