Who is more social - Android or iOS users?


  • Hello

    So a company who sells ad space in android apps, says that Android is the more popular/social platform.  This is a particularly good source then, because they won’t be biased at all.  

    How can you compare the amount of time it took instagram to reach 5m downloads? It was available on iOS over a year before Android! It had an enormous user base already at that point, of coarse it tallied the same amount of downloads in a shorter time.

    This is info is useless garbage, just a bunch of shitty PR/Marketing, why would you bother reposting it?
