I came across a very interesting stat today which shows how important Mobile is in South Africa. According to the latest Facebook Mobile stats at Socialbakers.com, Facebook now has 54% of it’s users accessing the platform via Mobile.
In South Africa, 80.5% of Facebook users access the Facebook network via Mobile ! That is HUGE !! We have around 4.5 million (the 34th biggest “Facebook Country”) registered Facebook users in South Africa and that means around 3.62 million of them are accessing via the Mobile Facebook site or apps. There are only 2 other countries, Brunei & Nigeria that beat us,with Nigeria at 81.2%
