Facebook and the iPhone 4s: Facebook used to disclose, on a daily basis, monthly active users for each app on the platform, including the mobile phone apps. From today they’ve recently started rounding these to the nearest hundred thousand or so, which makes them less interesting, but I’ve been collecting the detailed numbers for the couple of months, and that means I can make this chart.
The line shows, very clearly, the slowdown in iPhone sales in the run-up to the release of what turned out to be the 4S, and more importantly it shows what’s happened since - even faster growth than before. No slowdown here.
