Facebook confirms 150m mobile users

Facebook has confirmed it has more than 150m mobile users and issued a software update making it easier for developers to integrate Facebook into their Apple apps.

The update, called Facebook SDK for iOS, makes it easier for users to link content from iPhone apps to their Facebook profile to share with their friends.

In a blog post, Yujuan Bao, a Facebook mobile engineer, said, “With more than 150m people actively using Facebook from mobile devices, we have a commitment to not only developing our own mobile sites and apps but ensuring that developers can also build similar social experiences.”

He added that Facebook had been working with some of the biggest-selling games publishers on the App Store, such as Electronic Arts and Zynga, to improve integrating their products.

The software update comes weeks after Facebook issued a software development kit (SDK) for developers using the Google-owned Android platform.

Facebook recently appointed former Google engineer Erick Tseng as its head of mobile products and has been working towards introducing location-based status updates to its portfolio of products.
