According to Facebook, 83 percent of UK users like to access the social network from a smartphone or mobile.

In total, more than 24 million people in the UK log-on to the service each day, with some 33 million people visiting each month. Judging from those figures, a quick sum reveals that around 20 million users access from a mobile each day.

With four out of five daily UK visitors now accessing the site via a phone or tablet (app or browser) and Facebook reporting increases in its mobile revenue, perhaps the social network can finally lay to rest claims that it doesn’t know how to drive mobile usage, and more importantly, turn those visits into profit.
