Facebook is the 2nd Most Downloaded Free App on the iPhone

It’s been a busy year for Facebook on the iPhone:

Today, Apple released the top 10 most downloaded applications (free, paid, and by category) in 2008. Facebook ranked #2 amongst all free apps behind Pandora and just ahead of Tap Tap Revenge, and #1 amongst social networking applications ahead of AIM and MySpace.

While Facebook for iPhone still doesn’t take advantage of the iPhone’s location-aware capabilities, the growth in Facebook mobile usage in 2008 combined with today’s stats show just how quickly users are adopting a multi-screen Facebook experience. Congratulations to Joe Hewitt and the Facebook for iPhone team on a great start in 2008.
