Facebook announced some impressive stats at LeWeb in Paris, the first being that over 200,000 Android and iPhone apps are now using Facebook integration to some degree. Nine of the top 10 grossing iPhone apps have Facebook integrated and over 45 percent of the top 400 grossing iOS apps use their SDK.
There are now over 350 Facebook apps available on mobile with more than one million monthly active users each.
The social network also talked about the success of mobile and web apps which chose to integrate with Open Graph. Open Graph helps developers introduce frictionless sharing into their apps.
Here are some success stories:
- Fitness app Endomondo has received over eight times as many referrals since March 2012. Over 12 million workouts have been shared which has generated over 1.5 billion impressions.
- Since integrating with Facebook at the beginning of 2012, music app Deezer is now adding 50,000 new users per day.
- Music discovery app Shazam has seen a 47 percent growth in Facebook connected users since integrating with Open Graph in June 2012.
On Facebook.com 220 million people visit the app center each month and more than 251 million social network users play games each month.
Facebook continues to grow its mobile user base with over 600 million monthly active mobile users as of September 30, 2012.
