Windows Phone 7 Facebook app finally crosses 1 million monthly active users

imageIt has been a hard slog, and now, on the eve of the one year anniversary of the launch of Windows Phone 7, the Windows Phone 7 built-in Facebook app has finally crossed the 1 million active user mark.

Based on earlier estimates this translates into about 6 million Windows Phone 7 users in total, a number I am sure far below what Microsoft expected to sell over the last 12 months, but still a reasonable constituent.

By comparison the Facebook for iPhone app has around 90 million users, while the Facebook for Android app has has 67 million.

Hopefully with a new generation of devices and more committed partners in the next 12 months Windows Phone will also cross these milestones at a significantly higher pace.
