Android has surpassed the iPhone as the most popular platform for mobile access to Facebook, according to research firm AppData.
The figures suggest that Android's mobile application has been the top performer on Facebook since 16 December with an average of 58,800 users per day.
The iPhone was the second most popular platform for Facebook with 57,600 users per day, followed by the iPad with 5,500.
"Although Facebook for iPhone still leads in monthly active users, the Android app has a higher percentage of daily active users per monthly active users," the company said in a post to its InsideFacebook blog. "This suggests Facebook is more 'sticky' among Android users."
Android has seen its use rates soar over the course of 2011, reaching a number of milestones as its market share grew more than 800 per cent on the year.
However, Android was also popular target for malware infections in 2011.
