      Yesterday we had reported about the Growth of Android Mobile Platform in Indian mobile users. And the growth of android is increasing day by day also in the case of social networking apps. The Appdata tracking service's news,  the Daily Active Users(DAU) of Android App For Facebook has reached 58,300,000 while that of i-phone is 57,400,00. And the newly announced Facebook Timeline is also available in Android app but not in i-phone app and the Android device base is growing with about 550,000 activation per day. In the case of MAU( Monthly Active Users ) Android is slow with 85.4 Billion where the MAU of i-phone is 99.1. 
        The reason for Android's growth is the Announcement of Facebook official app for i-pad. When this app was released, most of i-phone users were shifted to this app from unoptimized i-phone app and still some of them were using third party apps. Since the i-phone app doesn't support timeline, most of i-phone users access Facebook through HTML5 Mobile Website. The absence of timeline in i-phone app is also a problem for the increase of DAU of Android Facebook App.
