Facebook has been working hard to make strides in the mobile area, which the company told investors was its weak spot before going public.

"As proud as I am that a billion people use Facebook each month, I’m also really happy that over 600 million people now share and connect on Facebook every month using mobile devices," said Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO. "People who use our mobile products are more engaged, and we believe we can increase engagement even further as we continue to introduce new products and improve our platform. At the same time, we are deeply integrating monetization into our product teams in order to build a stronger, more valuable company."
As of September 30 2012 the company has over 1 billion monthly active users and an average of 584m daily active users.
In September over 600 million users accessed Facebook through mobile devices, an increase of 61% year-on-year.
