Android: Facebook Rules Android App Use, Rated Most Popular (Nielsen)

Facebook is dominating Android, a study by Nielsen revealed today.

The data out of Nielsen released earlier today on the relative popularity of mobile apps sure caught my attention.

Turns out that, not counting Android Market, Facebook is the most popular mobile app on Android, Google’s growing mobile platform OS. Check it out.

Where did Nielsen get the data? You may recall it has a partnership deal with Carrier IQ, which we know tracks app usage on 150 million phones. Last week, a Nielsen rep told aNewDomain it had not yet begun work with Carrier IQ on the deal Nielsen and Carrier IQ announced in May.
