Mobile Ads Account for 98% of Facebook’s Revenue Growth

Facebook Mobile Ads

Facebook’s strong mobile advertising business helped the social network to report positive results for the fourth quarter of 2014. Revenue was up 49% to $3.85 billion, as the company’s profit grew by 34% to $701 million. For the full year, Facebook reported a net profit of $2.94 billion on $12.47 billion in revenue.

In each of the past seven quarters, mobile ads accounted for more then 90% of Facebook’s revenue growth. In the past three months, mobile advertising sales amounted to almost $2.5 billion.

Considering the fact that Facebook has 745 million mobile users on an average day, it is no surprise that its mobile advertising efforts are successful. The pace at which mobile ads have become the most important source of revenue for the company is astonishing though.

    ad networks are Facebook’s real competition because they will all be fighting for the attention and affection of developers. These days, it takes a lot to impress app developers and I see Facebook, Airpush and only a few others being really capable of doing that on a consistent basis. For example —
