Social networks and their mobile user base #infographic
This great infographic has been recently updated and shows the numbers of mobile users as a proportion of their overall userbase. Of particular interest is Skype who have recently been acquired by Microsoft. An estimated 663m Skype users have mobile access higher than any other service including Facebook. There is definitely a valuable user base there for Microsoft especially as we know that there will be a Windows Phone 7 version coming when the Mango update is released.
Some other points of interest:
- 5.3bn mobile devices worldwide
- Over half of these are in the Asia & Pacific region where Nokia are strong
- Microsoft properties Skype and Hotmail have access to over 1bn mobile devices
- Where would BlackBerry’s BBM be on this map?
