ComScore reports Facebook's 7.5 million unique mobile users spent 2.5 billion minutes on its site in December. The next closest competitor was Google with 9.5 million users spending a relatively paltry 702 minutes on its sites.
ComScore's UK data is unique because it has access to anonymized mobile web data through the county's five mobile operators.
Home usage of the PC is down 20% since 2008, according to this chart from a Morgan Stanley report examining the burgeoning tablet market.
What's changed in the last few years? The growth of the smartphones and tablets, says Morgan Stanley. As people use smartphones for more simple computing tasks like web surfing, they use traditional PCs less.
In an optimistic case, Morgan Stanley thinks hardware makers will ship 100 million tablets in 2012, up from 16 million in 2010. Considering Apple has a lock on touch screen displays this is pretty good news for the Apple bulls.
Earlier this week we published a chart showing the utter collapse of music sales during the digital era.
One reader took issue with our chart, saying it didn't capture the full collapse of the business because it wasn't inflation adjusted. He produced the chart below saying, music sales are down 64% from their peak, not 45% as the other chart suggested.
