There’s nothing stopping Facebook and the statistics are quite astonishing. Its user base has crossed 900 Million and user experience is being revised very often. Timeline, groups, pages and photo gallery all have got a new look now. Also the Facebook’s campaign towards mobile devices has proved very effective. Almost every mobile device has social media integration or support for Facebook login.

Previously, Facebook had been driven by people playing social games mostly on desktop PCs. Well, things have changed! A new study by digital research company ComScore says Smartphone users are spending a lot of time browsing social networks on their phones and Facebook login seems to be their network of choice.  Now an average Facebook user in USA spends more than seven hours browsing Facebook. That count is more than a person using desktop PC for Facebook.

These long hours from an average users means, Facebook is in firm control over its users. As of now, except the Timeline there is nothing to blame on Facebook. ComScore uses Mobile Metrix 2.0 reporting to calculate audience sizes across app and browser usage, providing a comprehensive view of the complete media brand reach on mobile devices.
