250 million Facebook users on mobile
More than 250 million people are now accessing Facebook from their mobile phones according to Facebook. That represents rapid growth, since in February 2010 it passed the 100 million mark.
Alongside the new mobile milestone, Facebook has relaunched its mobile web presence, merging its two sites m.facebook.com and touch.facebook.com. The former was for feature phones, while the latter was for touchscreen smartphones.
Now they will use the same framework, but Facebook will automatically serve the best version of the site for each device that visits it, according to what features they have or don't have.
