ComScore released a new report today, Facebook and Twitter Access via Mobile Browser Grows by Triple-Digits in the Past Year, that looked at social networking access via mobile browsers. The study found that over 30% of smart phone users had accessed a social network via their mobile browser in January 2010. Twitter saw almost 4.7 million mobile users access their site in January 2010. This was a 347 percent increase over the same period last year. Twitter still lags behind Facebook (25.1 million) and MySpace (11.4 million). The report also notes that these numbers do not include access from mobile phone users who exclusively use mobile apps. So these numbers may be a bit higher, especially the Twitter numbers.
