    Or like you said... how many of them are being used as smartphones? How many are only used for voice and texting?

    Great question.

     

    Recent evidence would suggest that 90% are low-end devices. (I am too lazy to give you a cite, tbh; it was widely publicized, so I am sure you can look it up).

    Something smells here.

    Who here has ever clicked on taking fb ad? I for one never have.



    I just checked fb on my android phone, one suggested post every 20-60 regular posts and easily discernable as ads. Maybe ios fb has a lot more ads and people are clicking on them by mistake?

    Um... no?

    Nike had the SDK and API ready for distribution last summer. Tim Cook is on Nike's board of directors. Guess who nixed the API in favor of Apple exclusivity? Take a wild guess.



    BTW, it is the Nike+ Fuelband. Not 'fitband'. At least get the product name correct before going into derp mode.

    Can you provide any proof to back your claim? A company's board of directors job is general in nature and seldom get involved in the product decisions.

    Post 38 mentions poor android users in india/china.
    Indian fb users are about 5% of population.
    China is at 0.05% of population.
    USA is about 50%

    So fb ad revenue would not be significantly affected by poor android user's in India /china.

    Why would this be surprising? Most Android users are not 'smart phone' users. That is not a degradation towards them, but the fact that most of the Android market is 'Feature-Smart' where people want mostly just a phone, but opt for the larger screen. Price point, Android wins. For those wanting a Smart Phone to use as a smart phone was intended, buys Apple for the most part. 

    Cheap phones will [probably] always be the vast majority, simply because most people just want a phone to make calls, text, and perhaps share photos. It will take another couple (2-3) generations before computing is done handheld by the masses. 

    Are those devices still counted in this study if they aren't used as smartphones with the FB app, or used at all?

    I come across that as well with folks I know that bought their Android phones.  Most had the same line: "It was the cheapest phone they had".  Even with iPhones going for as low as $49, it doesn't matter... cheap or free will always prevail with these people.


    That doesn't even bother me.  What's really shameful are the Android fanboys here and in other forums that continue ripping on any product/app that doesn't support Android and preaching to the world "These <insert smart companies here> are missing out on 'millions' of Android customers by not making it work on Android" bull$h!t.


    Simple truth.  The majority of Android users don't spend money.  I lost track of how many times I've read the exact same metrics over the years.  Fandroids know it, but don't want to acknowledge it.


    Fandroids will simply say that "Well, Android users are smart with their money" or "iOS users are just a bunch of rich trust-fund kiddies that like wasting money", or the typical name-calling that they are so good at doing since they have no valid argument to debate with.


    This just cracks me up.

    Why are you worried about these welfare leeching Hyundai driving android idiots? It's called envy

    The way he worded his post tells you that he can't possibly prove it. It's merely something he wants to believe but has no proof to back it up. He presents you with the same, circumstantial evidence that he used to come to his decision and then includes a question as bait to see if you will magically come to the same unscientific conclusion, which he follows up with a statement that attempts to make you look stupid if you don't choose the obvious answer he'd framed up. If you don't take the bait and present an argument that destroys his fanciful desires then he can claim he never actually stated it. I'm hoping my post will get him to commit to it.

    Slight math correction for the author:  One order of magnitude means 10x.  Two orders of magnitude means 100x.  While the ~18x is certainly a very, very impressive number, it is not even close to being "nearly two orders of magnitude higher".  When I see this type of error in the mainstream media (especially prevalent on CNN) I usually just ignore it.  But I've come to respect some of the in-depth reporting from this site, so it pains me to see it here.  Hopefully this comment is construed as helpful as opposed to snarky.  Cheers!

    Regardless, point is ios destroys android again

    First, seriously? 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?

    There u go, cheap ass android user

    Everything is conspiracy, you know. How else can a respectable company ignore such a respectable OS even if all the data in the world showing otherwise? Makes me giggle every time seeing how stupid these people can be.

    So the Next Web magazine pulled out of Android because of what? Who's in Apple is on the board of the Next Web? or the Next Web doing this out of their love for Apple? You guys crack me up! Keep up the good work!

    Thats a good one. So Andrea Jung is on Apple's board so I guess Avon used to get exclusive beauty apps on the iPhone.



    I didn't know Nike only had one board member and the CEO of Nike can't make a decision on his own.

    It's really funny to read how these guys are spinning it.  They refuse to even entertain the notion that Nike booted Android out simply because of ROI reasons.  No.  It HAD to be a shadow-meeting in a board room between Cook and the CEO.  Of course in this case they can say that without providing any proof that board of directors can tell a CEO how to market its products.



    I read about Nike's booting of Android due to support reasons from various Android-centric sites.

    Hey genius, if there's money to be made Nike would have release it for Android. Unless Apple is paying for exclusivity (doubtful), no company would not develop for a viable platform. Android isn't viable for Devs because many can't make money off Android.

    If true... that's really sad.

    Android has something like 80% of the market... while iOS only has 11%

    It seems like Android's phenomenal market share isn't really an advantage.
