Facebook shared its earnings today and revealed some interesting statistics about how its users access the social network.

This quarter, half a billion users out of a total 1.39 billion accessed the social network using only a mobile device, making an increase of 26 percent year-over-year. That’s 37.8 percent of Facebook users that never log in to the desktop site.

The number includes those visiting via the apps or mobile website, but excludes Instagram and WhatsApp.
