Facebook app

Facebook users are growing day by day and smartphone users are using facebook app as 3rd most useful app globally. So the fact that the social network, and its rudimentary in-app browser, accounts for such a large amount of traffic, only highlights just how dominant it’s become as an information source. Particularly for a company that’s supposedly tweaking its News Feed algorithm to emphasize less news and content from brands and publishers. The fact is, Facebook remains massively influential, regardless of privacy scandals or News Feed changes.

As we gone through more details google shared The study, from analytics company Mixpanel, shows that Facebook’s mobile app is the now one of the top mobile browsers in the U.S., accounting for 7.63 percent of mobile browser traffic in the country.  doubts about how influential Facebook is, consider this: Facebook’s app is now the third-most popular browser in the United States, according to new data.

Facebook comes in at a (relatively distant) third place may not seem like a huge deal on its face.
