Sure, I'll do you a favor -- this time -- by spelling it out, since you (and your type) seem to be incapable of following a thread of arguments.
Some fandroid (whose name I cannot recall, but look the first page of the thread, if interested) asked this here:
"Someone actually clicks on stupid Facebook ads? iOS users click on them like they've got the antidote or something. That's what needs to get answered: Why the F are they clicking on stupid Facebook ads in the first place?"
Let's keep things simple and consider some representative numbers. Assume the US and China are the only countries where FB is available, and that 75% of, say, 200M US smartphone users are on FB (i.e., 175M), while only 1% of, say, 200M Chinese smartphone users are (i.e., 2M). Assume that US share of iOS:Android is 60:40, and that in China 20:80.
Total number of iOS devices globally: 120 + 40 =160
Total number of Android devices globally: 80 + 160 = 240
Global share of iOS:Android -- 160 : 240 (i.e., Android has a larger global share, as often reported).
Total number of FB users on iOS devices globally: 105 + 0.4 = 105.4
Total number of FB users Android devices globally: 60 + 1.6 = 61.6
Global share on FB iOS:FB Android -- 105.4 : 61.6
Even if iOS and Android users clicked on ads at the same rate -- and leaving aside click-throughs for purchases, where cheapskate Androiders perhaps just window-shop -- where do you think most of FB clicks will come from?
Now, extrapolate similar data to the rest of the world.... and you can get to the answer you would give the fandroid who made the original post that I responded to.
