Social networking powerhouse Facebook has seen its iPhone user base grow consistently, with the 100 million mark just passed for active participants using the dedicated application.
These figures include not just the iPhone and its variants, but any Apple device powered by the iOS platform, which means that iPad and iPod Touch users are also amongst the total.
Over half a billion people actively use Facebook around the world and given that 20 per cent of these are in possession of an Apple product it is clear that the ties between the two are closer than you might think.
The Facebook app for iPhone is continuing to expand in functionality, with the new location-based Places service arriving to upset some of its less established rivals.
A comprehensive figure showing just how many active iOS users are accessing Facebook via the app is available on the official iPhone group. At present, this is sitting close to 104 million, with considerable room for expansion.
